Question

Do you agree with the Commissioner of Police's reported comments at the Chief Rabbi's conference, that Shomrin's volunteers and vehicles look to much like police officers and cars; if so, what action do you propose to take; and if not will you disassociate yourself from the Commissioner's views?

Answer

Answer for Shomrin

Answer for Shomrin

Answered By: 
The Mayor

I am a great supporter of Shomrim and they do an outstanding job in protecting their community. However, no one should imitate a police officer or police vehicle as this can cause confusion. I am sure that the Commissioner and Shomrim will be able to resolve any misunderstandings.
