I understand an increased presence might deter burglaries, but that doesn't seem to be their focus and they are not in locations to spot the fake solicitors who are sizing up our homes.
I know someone is going to say that residents need to stop endangering others and they will not get tickets, but frankly those I see getting pulled over don't look reckless or dangerous.
If there is a problem that needs to be addressed than the police should declare it is a problem and say this is the action that is being taken to address it. Ticketing residents- including an old man on a bike - by hiding and looking for minor infractions will not change behaviors.
