Creating a friendlier environment at the San Pedro Police Department
Friday, February 28th, 2014
A decision has been taken to remove the unsightly broken down police vehicle from in front of the San Pedro Police Station. Luis Castellanos, Officer in Charge informed the media that the image of the vehicle parked in front of the station was certainly an eye sore to the public and visiting tourists. “On numerous occasions, tourists would take pictures and even visit the station asking if the vehicle was for sale. San Pedro is a major tourism destination, and as such, it was kind of embarrassing to have the vehicle be a negative showcase to our department and country. Our aim is to make the San Pedro Police Department’s image friendlier and more professional to the public,” said OC Castellanos. The vehicle was sent to a garage in the San Pablo area, it will remain there until repairs can be made. Castellanos welcomes suggestions on how to better the San Pedro Police Department.
