One thing that has come to light over the past two years - HRMPD needs to run better assessments/testing of their incoming officers and maybe even periodically test those that have been on the job for a while. We have officers who are accused of shoplifting, dealing drugs, domestic assault, supposedly doing "work" for HRMF&E on the side running IP addresses...let's not forget the same officer accused of drug dealing and assault ALSO has a ticket against him for driving a police vehicle while talking on a cell phone (I have seen this happening on a semi-regular basis while waiting for a bus)...and this is only stuff that we know about because it has been publicized. I can only imagine WHAT else is happening 'behind the scenes' dealt with out of the media spotlight.
Perhaps the city needs to do a thorough review of essential services (PD and FD) from the top down, and perhaps with a new Mayor there will be action and all the ineffective deadwood could be eliminated. The city needs fresh blood, new thinking, and effective management.
I've eaten only at the Venus Pizza in the food court at Halifax Shopping Center - and I'll say, the staff there is wonderful, and the food it fantastic. My only real 'beef' with the HSC location is that they will run out of chicken on occassion, so, no shwarma available. But when they do have chicken - OUTSTANDING!!! The garlic sauce, the pickled turnip - the way it should be!!!
