We are just a microcosm with the few police officers that we have. I would really appreciate that the Public understand that.”He said that while there is a minuscule percentage of the public that do share information with the Police it should be a national effort since crime doesn’t only affect the police.“Crime affects the citizenry of the country and as such if all of us in one way or the other and notwithstanding the information that you have which might appear to be insignificant, but it might mean so much to the police as we would analyze it and evaluate the information that is being shared.”He added that a lot of times a wide cross section of the public bring to bear that there is no confidentiality in the police. “There are many people who share no information and they talk about confidentiality. It is important on the other hand however that the police must note that the information that they have received from the public remains secret and is not something to be divulged.”He reiterated that the information given to the Police “must and will remain secret and must not be compromised confidentiality must not be compromised as well.”center_img Share Share Sharing is caring!last_img
