Kudos to cops for Sandy curfews

THE EDITOR, Sir:

As Jamaicans, we do not hesitate to express our displeasure on issues. Therefore, we should not hesitate to praise, when we think praise is due. To this effect, I wish to 'big up' the commissioner of police, and the police force in general, for their proactive action in the recent hurricane.

I was surprised when I heard places such as Falmouth, Clark's Town, Wakefield and Duncans in Trelawny were under curfew during the storm. I am certain that putting all these places under curfew reduced criminal activities during the passage of Hurricane Sandy, thereby allowing the police the opportunity to assist in other areas of need. I only wish the rest of the Government was as proactive as the commissioner of police this time.
