Every time there’s a crime, accident, or other matter worthy of police attention in Charlottetown, you can expect to see Deputy Chief of Police Richard Collins on Compass telling the police side of the story.
Richard Collins has very obviously not been to media school. He’s prone to sometimes using the wrong word in the right place, and sometimes he laughs at times when he shouldn’t. He tends to be more honest then he probably should, and then sometimes tries to take it back. In short, he’s not a polished media player. And that’s okay by me: Richard Collins appears on television like a regular everyday person who happens to work for the police department. He’s “one of us” and he approaches interviews, within the bounds of his job, just like that.
It can’t be an easy job, and he does it well. Thanks.
