To the Editor:
During the week, I drive my daughter to school from Roosevelt Island to Queens. We leave the Island at approximately 8:00 a.m. and turn from Main Street going towards the Roosevelt Island Bridge. Hats off and a well-deserved salute to the three Public Safety officers who, despite the weather, passionately direct traffic, not only during the morning rush, but in the afternoon as well. These few officers should receive a special accommodation for their loyalty and dedication.
It puzzles me that some officers, like these, are so dedicated and zealous at performing their duties, while other officers merely observe traffic and talk to familiar passers-by from the comfort of the adjacent sidewalk, under the eave of the buildings, with their hands in their pockets, far away from their designated post.
Perhaps the significant gap in performance of these public servants has been overlooked, and the matter should be addressed and rectified.
