    Apart from the obvious (drug-heads with machetes on their bicycles hanging in front of WB Police Station) how about randon (or targetted) stop+searches of paroled burglers and violent offenders?
    RCIP is only reactive -not responsive at all!
    But then, i saw the first WB cop in years on bike patrol today!!
    Is there hope?
