Drive-through desk sergeants planned for French police station

Feb. 22, 2014 at 2:21 PM

LA CANNET, France, Feb. 22 (UPI) -- Police in southern France said they were adding a drive-up window to their station that citizens can use to report suspicious activities.

The window was designed originally to help disabled people with police business, but the plan now calls for the window to be used as a drive-through desk for anyone who doesn't want to commit to the time and effort it would take to walk into the station, the Local.fr reported Saturday.

Officials in the Riviera town of La Cannet said people who were victimized by a crime or wanted to report illegal activity could do so by speaking to the officer at the window.

The window is not an off-the-wall suggestion, the Local.fr said. The Riviera is known as a car-crazy area where residents drive a lot and are used to drive-through facilities for conducting their everyday activities.
