It's time for people in Drumheller and surrounding communities to go online and add their two cents worth on policing in the area.
 
The Policing Committee's annual police survey is back in the public eye.
 
"Right now, we're pushing to have as many surveys done before a week from tomorrow (Mar. 22) so that the RCMP can get their report in to their hierarchy and let them know what the people of Drumheller want policed," explained committee member Larry Coney.
 
"You sit and have coffee with people and they do nothing but complain about the police; this is a chance for the people to have their say," he remarked. "We don't tell the police how to do their duty, but the survey gives them a recommendation and a clear insight as to what the people of Drumheller want."
 
The police survey can be accessed through a link on the Town of Drumheller's webpage, www.dinosaurvalley.com. It only takes a couple of minutes to fill out, but Coney says it's beneficial to both the police and the general public.
 
"We have an officer here in town that many complaints have come in on for giving tickets out," he noted. "Well, that's his job, number one; number two, if he wasn't doing that people would be complaining on the other side of the coin."
