Can you say UNION?

The title should say it all. The members are fine and easy to deal with, its the other staff memebers that are questionable.
"Phone call" vs "In Person"
Comment by Maggie Jo on 12th October 2011
You think talking on the phone is bad? You should try going in PERSON to the Detachment.

The Officers are always extremely professional and courteous, but a few of the front end reception staff hired by the City? OUCH!

Their job description notes they are to have the skills to treat everyone with respect when they arrive at the Detachment - including those they believe to be less desirable. So, why so brash? I was simply turning in a found wallet or reporting something; yet after repeated horrible receptions I walk away feeling like I was the one who had committed a crime, and figure next time I shouldn't even bother.

Not gettin' it. And don't give me the excuse about working in a stressful environment. I work in a highly stressful/at times volatile enviornment and in all my years working there I have never ever been rude or treated someone disrespectfully.
I absolutely love these reports!

Just some feedback - I love these reports. This is a great way for me to keep aware of what is going on in my neighborhood.

While I am stunned at the behavior of the "ladies" in town in regards to alcohol; I am much more aware of what the police actually are doing around here.

Now I just wonder why, when I call about something going on - the lady on the phone had gotten really rude and argued with me about whether it was a reportable incident or not when there are tonnes of similar incidents listed in these reports that were responded to. And I am not talking about 911 either. Just the regular number in the middle of the week, in the middle of the day. Big time asian drug dealing related stuff right in front of my eyes. You would think they would welcome reports about that kind of stuff.

IThen Istopped phoning stuff in about two years ago because of the aggressive rudeness of one particular woman who was particulary brazen. Go figure I wonder what that was all about???
