Yeah I should have been more specific. There are certain communities cops don't see themselves as a part of. Hell one of the big problems with policing in US cities is the number of cops who don't actually live in the places they work; in New York for example, 51% of uniformed NYPD officers live outside the city. I have a feeling you'd see a similar figure in a place like Toronto.

Lots of people who work or go to school in NYC live across the bridge in New Jersey.

I think there's a difference between a cop and a stockbroker, don't you?

What does that have to do with anything? New York has 36,000 officers and 19,000 civilian employees. How many do you think they would have if they forced them to live in New York?

Departments are hemorrhaging officers as it is.

The argument is living where you work makes you more connected to and knowledgeable of the community you serve, which isn't really a requirement for a stockbroker.

Article is paywalled, but from what I've read in other places a lot of it is because a bunch either quit because of vaccine mandates or actually died of COVID while others are worried about increased scrutiny, to which I say, good riddance. Or they just got a better job.

That's why I added the CNN link. There are lots more articles on the issue if you care to do a search.

When you call for a cop and they don't show up, don't complain if it because there is no one to answer your call.

Nine Mounties accused of sexual abuse of Indigenous girls during a case that convicted a judge. Colleague finds incriminating tapes, reports them, another cop burgles them from her house, she sends in a tape he missed. No investigation.

Allegations that B.C. RCMP officers abused Indigenous women ‘swept under the carpet,’ says ex-Mountie

Burgler cop was also the cop's ex-husband.

These people are sick monsters.
