    Mtl police publication suggests women cops respect Hasidic preference for men

    "Your professional role is to facilitate an exchange with the speaker," said the article, written by a police officer. "In certain cases, that could mean having your male colleague intervene to facilitate the discussion and the provision of service."



    A suggestion that female police officers call in male colleagues when male victims prefer not to deal with women has sparked heated debate about how much should be done to accommodate various cultural and religious groups.

    A column in the October issue of L'heure juste, an internal newsletter for Montreal police, describes a situation where a crime is committed against a Hasidic Jewish man, whose religious doctrine frowns on "fraternization" between men and women who are not relatives.

    "Your professional role is to facilitate an exchange with the speaker," said the article, written by a police officer. "In certain cases, that could mean having your male colleague intervene to facilitate the discussion and the provision of service."

    Montreal police said the article, part of a monthly column that deals with cultural issues, is not official policy.

    "We just want to sensitize female officers to not react when the person in front of her maybe won't talk to her, just not to be offended," said Montreal police spokeswoman Insp. Johanne Paquin.

    Calls to the editor of the magazine were not returned Wednesday but reaction was swift from other quarters

    "Central. I'll be 10-8, status 80. (no report needed) Subject refused to talk to officers."

    We had a caller one night that wanted to report a break-in. He kept telling dispatch that he didnt want a black officer sent. Everytime he called back (starting around 7pm) asking where the officer was he was told that all the white officers were busy. When one was free they would send one over. They did this all night long, he finally stopped calling at about 11 or 12. At about 4am I went to his house and knocked really loud and told him I was there to take his report. Yes I woke him up. The idiot had no idea we messed with him, he actually thanked us.....dumb-ass!

    Meh, if someone wants to dictate the terms of contact when requesting a report, they can go to the station during regular business hours.

    Interviews

    Years ago we had a flake female training officer who scheduled a training class on different cultures. One of the subjects was when talking to a hispanic female who was with ther boyfriend, husband or whatever, defer to the man because of their MACHISMO (or whatever the spelling is). I asked, what if I don't want to talk to him, just her. This flake said to talk to her thru the man. I said, "Bullshit", I don't want to talk to him, just her, and he can kiss my butt if he don't like it. I would ask (tell) him to have a seat outside and IF I wanted him, I would call him into the interview room. Needless to say, I failed this bullshit class. She's long gone, I'm still here. I figure, if they want a Police Officer, they take what they get, or as so aptly said in other posts, 10-8, see ya later allegator.
