Where are the police? Where are the residents?

I’ve seen police officers spend innumerable hours placing parking tickets on vehicles. I have NEVER seen an officer patrolling a dark parking lot after hours. I’ve watched drugs sold on the sidewalk across from Wharfside. I’ve NEVER seen an officer walking a beat down that sidewalk. Ever. Until the residents of St. John demand a competent police force and justice from the courts for those arrested, they run serious risk of having the tourists decide to take their dollars elsewhere.
