On the morning of April 30, 2013 St. Thomas Police received a call from a local Elementary School reporting that a 6 year old had been dropped off in the morning by his mother but was not at School. Police flooded the area in search of the young boy. After 30 minutes of searching the boy was located. Special thanks is in order for Cox Cab driver Steve Inger who spotted the boy and notified Police.
This particular incident helps substantiate the importance of our Taxi’s On Patrol program (T.O.P.). This program was introduced at the end of 2012 and was designed to incorporate out local Taxi drivers as an extra eyes and ears for the Police. Today this program has paid off.
