B"H Is it just me or does it seem like the police tend to hang out in the wrong places. Almost every night there are 4 cop cars by the gas station on corner of West Broadway and Rockaway. Giving them benefit of the doubt - ie: They all have dinner break then... but I just think Cops need to patrol more and make their presence known more.

No Menachem it is just you. I totally disagree with your assessment of the police in our community. I think they are doing an amazing job with what they have at their disoposal. Not schkoiach at all.

Are the police doing a better job than the ones in Boro Park? If not one could move there.
