state police tripping all over these guys with warrants. what is amazing woonsocket police have all the information on warrants. A simple phone call to some of wanted people, could produce some arrest.

I like how the City had a deal with the Police dept to make it Mandatory for outside contractors doing any work on city roads to Pay a City policeman to detail the traffic, just yesterday I seen 2 officers working on Hamlet ave and all they did was talk to eachother, 1 of them sohuld have been on 1 end of the building and the other on the other side, traffic on 1 side was backed up all day long, and thats what they there for, for that not to happen. Overtime Officers ? Do your Job ! Mayor Fontaine ? Pay attention to where your paying our Money.

when police are on details when contractors are working, they are paid by contracting firm not woonsocket taxpayers. But do agree that details people could act a little better on the job.
