Blind eye to crime no way to keep community safe

IT'S heartening to see that our police are working hard at keeping the lid on one of modern life's major scourges - drugs.

This time the drug bust and consequent arrests were made in Agnes Water, which proves that no matter where you are, you're more than likely going to get caught at some stage.

It's a bit like the people who were arrested earlier in the week in Monto with a massive haul of illegal firearms and ammunition in their possession.

They probably considered that Monto was a safe place to hide their stash, and that nobody would ever think to look there for them.

But there are many law-abiding citizens - and a very diligent police force - so people can't get away with any criminal activity for any length of time.

And that's the way it should be.

Each and every one of us should be keeping their eyes wide open and reporting anything that looks suspicious.

Turning a blind eye is not the ideal way to ensure our community is a safe one.
