Police conduct Downtown Outreach
Fredericton's finest are making their presence known in the downtown today. More than 20 city police officers are taking part in a special operation called Downtown Outreach. Constable Danielle Carmichael explains, it's an extension of the force's recent foot patrol efforts...
Carmichael says this was not prompted by a rise in complaints, but is simply a proactive approach to get ahead of any possible problems. She adds, while officers will be enforcing bylaw, motor vehicle and other infractions, that's not really the main goal of the exercise. Downtown Outreach is expected to last into the evening hours.
