And on November 5th they were towing and ticketing a Rye Resident's vehicle which was parked where the RPD gives residents and business owners of Indian Village permission to move their vehicles to when Flooding is expected!!! Nothing like a little community support from 3 Rye Police Officers that should have been spending their time helping families devestated by a HISTORIC STORM & in desperate need of all the help they can get, instead they took their time to address their internal issues thru targeting a Rye Resident who was fully cooperating and in contact with their Supervising Officers right up to the point of which they decided to act with such deplorable behavior!!! Sadly it's individuals such as these 3 that give our entire RPD a black eye!!!

I hear you Jim! We were the house above who received the warning and my roofing contractors were forced to sit, wait and loose 45 mins of daylight to replace my roof following substantial damage due the Hurricane. Yes a grumpy neighbor down the street had heartlessly complained but where was the change to City ordinance allowing me to repair my roof before another approaching snow storm! Please note this was not work on a pleasant much awaited renovation project but an emergency repair. And before someone tells me I should have had them work on a weekday - they did - even by torchlight on Friday night up until the required stop time! I'm hoping the people in Rockaways and Long Beach have a much more supportive program in place to help them rebuild!!!

Unfortunately the cops have to do what the law dictates, and unfortunately the law is enforced selectively. That being said, the real misguided individual in your case would be your neighbor.......what on earth is wrong with people today!!! I'm sure there were better solutions than calling the cops because of a whopping 45 minutes in a desperate situation like that, that's quite the neighbor you are stuck with. I am truly at a loss for what goes on around here Vicki, it turns my stomach.....when a certain Former Council Member broke the law, and in ways that should not be overlooked, it was barely a whisper...you have your roof ripped off by a Historic Storm and you are penalized.....HOW PATHETIC!!!
