FROM THE MAYOR - It has too frequently been true that our Police, having
been called in connection with a theft, a break-in, a trespass, or some
other depredation suffered by a citizen, apprehend the person they believe
to be the perpetrator of the criminal! act and then find that the offended
citizen refuses to prosecmte! The reasons given by the citizen for such
refusal may seem to him adequate, but he is in fact subjecting the entire
Town to the possibility that the offense may be repeated against another
citizen. In addition, the Police may have spent much time and effort on
the case and it is discouraging, to say the least, when the complainant
will not cooperate to bring the matter to trial. If we expect to have
law enforcement in this community, it is absolutely essential that all of
our citizens play their part, even if that means spending a few hours in
a Courtroom* It is the 30b of the Police to apprehend the perpetrator
of a crime} it is the job of the Courts to determine the guilt or inno
cence of the accused; and it is the job of every good citizen to assist
in this process as best he can!
