Letter to the Editor - Wednesday, May 21: Region will suffer

A GOOD police officer takes about five years to train. The rare really great coppers much, much longer.

Yamba/Maclean was lucky to have an oversupply of really great police officers. The Yamba FUBAR has cost Yamba/Maclean much more than they think, and has taken a toll much greater than many know.

The community has been devalued.

Yamba/Maclean you should know that the present officers are doing the best they can, but you lost some of the finest officers I have ever seen.

Stephen Bell,
Grafton
