    Well maybe they should have more on the night shifts?

  2. hockeynan says:

    Divide our police into,4 shifts and that isn’t that many.Also on the boat there are summer students.There has to be two officers on the boat

  3. Chuck says:

    You are correct in saying we have “so many police”!

  4. John jinglehimier says:

    We only have so many police? We have a lot!!! How can they justify having 3 officers on the boat in the summer? It’s not Miami vice! They need to prioritize their time. A shame this is happening.

  5. hockeynan says:

    We only have so many police.They can’t watch the whole county at one time.If they could you people would really be complaining

  6. H. Campbell says:

    It’s about time these thugs are caught, and it’s about time that there is some police presence in the wee hours favoured by these crooks. It shouldn’t be so much of a challenge to police that they can’t catch them; just put a bit of priority on it and put a stop to it.

  7. Dave Gray says:

    Damm!Our County is sure changing, both of these Wellington business are a big asset to our community, sorry to hear about break-in, it is the last thing a small business needs.
