It seems residents of Thurlow don’t have too many issues with the Belleville Police Service.
The BPS held the first of two town-hall events there on Wednesday night, to give residents a chance to ask any questions they might have of various unit experts, while also gathering information to help update the community safety plan.
Thurlow residents Maxine Geiger and May Doyle say they’re pleased with the service, but were still curious about some of the work various officers do.
That seemed to be the shared attitude of the handful of residents who spoke with Quinte News.
According to Deputy Chief Ron Gignac there has also been plenty of positive opinion gathered during a recent phone survey, which split the city into zones, to give a clear picture of what’s happening where.
He says it was important to find out what different issues the residents of Thurlow might be facing.
Another town hall event is being held Thursday, at the Parkdale Community Centre on Birch Street, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
Gignac says he hopes for a big turnout so they can get a true idea of what people expect from BPS officers and staff.
