Increased Police presence in Newton
The Surrey Now is reporting that In the wake of the homicide of Julie Paskall, Surrey RCMP have increased foot and bike patrols in Newton, targeting drug dealing, drunkenness and prostitution in the town core. If this is true and if this policy lasts, then that is a very good thing.
All it takes is for a police officer to stand on a corner beside a drug dealer to significantly impact that dealers business. The article claims locals are concerned with how long the increase will last for good reason. Let's support this initiative and help it continue.
