Use More Patrols, Enforce the Laws

Editor, News-Register:

Loitering brings littering.

Now that the city of Wheeling voters have voiced their opinion about the two men to a cruiser issue, leaving it up to the discretion of the chief of police to assign, I look forward to visible police foot patrols during the day in the downtown area. I also look forward to more police cruiser patrols at night, which are much needed, especially in the upcoming months of summer.

Loitering brings littering. Loitering with vagrancy is more like it.

The downtown streets and the waterfront area are the heaviest. It’s time to enforce the laws. Let’s respect one another’s rights to peace and safety.
