I was rather surprised at the comments in recent letters to the editor regarding the aspersions of inadequate enforcement by the White Rock RCMP.

My observation is that the we receive excellent value for our policing dollar and a reasonable response time for complaints.

The White Rock RCMP perform a variety of traffic enforcement initiatives such a seat-belt and stop-sign enforcement that are highly visible and have a deterrent value for all.

There will always exists the difficult balance of not being able to be everywhere and provide proactive community policing no matter where you reside, it seems.

The issue of who pays what amount of tax in the city, I am sure, does not impact on how the police determine response times or enforcement of traffic infractions.
