Sr. Supt. Dawson Explains Checkpoint on La Croix Blvd.

Alden Dawson

According to Senior Superintendent Dawson, the need for a checkpoint on La Croix Boulevard arises out of its distance from the nearest police substation, as well as the crime situation which is presently on the rise in the area.

“How effective has that been in terms of arresting the crime situation and the movement of gang elements in and out of the La Croix Boulevard area?”

“Well since the tents have been put up we haven’t gotten any reports out of this area and we wish we could do it in every area but because of the man power, the number, we can’t do it in every area that spurs up every so often.  But we try to do it in more vulnerable areas.  If you notice this area is a distance away from the nearest police station.  So a place like this we try to put emphasis on.”
