They exceeded expectations


A couple of weeks ago, I noticed some valuable auto parts missing from behind my garage.


A couple of weeks ago, I noticed some valuable auto parts missing from behind my garage.

I phoned the RCMP and they took the details but did not promise much, as they had nothing to go on.

I subsequently talked to neighbours and received information as to where it went, so I phoned the RCMP again. The operator there said she would have an officer phone me.

I didn’t really expect anything to come of this, but lo and behold Const. S. Park turned up within 30 minutes. I was amazed, since I wasn’t really expecting even a phone call, let alone such quick service. He was pleasant and took the additional information and promised to phone me when he had some result.

Again I did not expect much, but again lo and behold he phoned me back and said he had the missing items and would have them returned immediately.

Now that’s service! After all the negative publicity the RCMP get and my own lack of faith, I felt I should commend them – Const. Park, in particular – on a job well done.
