The Public Deserves Faster Information From Salisbury Police Leadership

I am extremely disappointed in the Salisbury Police Leadership of Barbara Duncan with the delay in informing the public of incidents like what happened at the Centre At Salisbury.

A Woman was knocked to the ground and robbed at the Centre and it was almost a full 24 hours before the public was advised via a press release of what happened. On top of that all we get is a description of the suspects when everyone knows the mall has cameras everywhere that would have captured images of the suspects, but again these are not shared with the public

I think Chief Duncan feels that informing the public will scare them, but not informing them of potential dangers is even more reckless in my opinion. Jake Day is her boss now not Ireton and the hush hush on crime days are not going to keep flying with the new Administration.

Well said....the public is the last to know if it happens in city jurisdiction! She needs to adjust her press releases to be current quickly, history is to late!!! Get her on the ball Jake or make a change.

Spd is a disgrace and will get a ill informed citizen killed because of lack of knowledge on crime in areas.

Not to change the subject but does anyone have any details with the Christmas tree lighting tonight. I can't find any information regarding the festivities.

I agree with you JT. The public should be better informed.

I also believe the city should get rid of Barbara Duncan and Rick Hoppes and combine the Salisbury Police with the Salisbury Fire Department in to the City of Salisbury Department of Public Safety. That way you have one Director and two Deputy Chief's from each of the departments answering to him. Think of the Savings. I full salary with bennies and on staff vehicle.

Duncan lacks basic knowledge on how to fight street crime. Time for a proactive Police Chief who can keep the department staffed.

It's not just Salisbury! Five days ago in Crisfield, a woman was brutally assaulted in front of her own home right on the main highway (strip) and the police have not uttered one word to the public about it.This demonstrates a complete lack of concern for the safety of the public and causes further mistrust of the police by the citizens.I would love to know why they feel the public should not know about a potential danger.
