Regular neighbourhood patrols. We live at Erie and Raglan and the nighttime prowling, trespassing and petty thefts are disconcerting.
Speed controls in school zones.

As a former member of the PSB I wonder about the same thing we dealt with years ago --- More street patrols off the mail road ways.

We need more traffic enforcement in Collingwood. The driving habits of those visiting this area are atrocious. Speeding on our roads that have a 50km/hr limit is to the point of being ridiculous with a high number of drivers going 80 in a 50 zone.

I live at 341 Hurontario St and over the past year I have witnessed an almost universal disregard for road and bike safety and speed. Noise and violations of HTS and rarely see police. Lights at Hume &Hurontario disregarded. Air brake use in town.

More active engagement with community. Getting to know people. Helping rather than arresting. Supporting rather than criminalizing.
Drop the thin blue line! Become part of the community.

I would like to see body/dash cameras on the officers. For everyone's protection, both the officers and the public.

I would like to see an officer walk the streets 2-3 mornings a week, greeting people on the street, dropping into stores to introduce themselves and becoming a familiar presence in downtown. Loblaws to 4th and the Monaco to Nobles. Community policin
