Trivial Summonses At 100 Pct.

Trivial Summonses At 100 Pct.

Dear Editor;

To the 100 precinct police officer who issued a curfew summons to four 18 year old girls who were sitting on the boardwalk at 10:15 p.m., enjoying an August evening, you should be ashamed of yourself...But I understand your dilemma. The problem here in Rockaway is not over zealous police officers. The real problem is the direction of law enforcement taken by the Administration at the 100 precinct. Community policing for the protection of the residence is disrupted and monopolized when the superior officers measure good police work by a summons book filled with trivial summonses.
