Police on the Meet and Greet Beat

In the weekly police meet and greet, we caught up with Regional Commander of the Eastern Division South Marco Vidal on the south side of the city. Vidal and other cops were interacting with residents in the Iguana, Curassow, and Gibnut streets area. Vidal told the media that he was pretty impressed with the feedback from that area of Precinct One.

“I am pretty much happy with this particular meet and greet, in comparison to other areas. We get a number of suggestions in terms of how to improve what we are doing and other suggestions which I think are innovative. So, I think that, yes, it has been good so far.”

“How has the public and police relationship been improving since you took office?”


Sr. Supt. Marco Vidal

“Well, I don’t know if I can make assessment from the meet and greet. But I would imagine or hope that the public would allow us the time so that we can effectively police the area and ensure that the community feel safe. Our desire and our hope is that crime is reduced to the point where people can walk freely and go about their business without any fear or crime or any crime. And that is what we strive for. I don’t know that there is anybody in the department that would want to do otherwise. That is our mandate and we would like to carry that forward.”
