Spy network…350 Florida garbage truck drivers trained to snitch on citizens
They troll streets in the wee hours, they know the neighborhoods and they know when something’s amiss. And now they want you to know, the garbage man has got your back.
With the support and blessing of several local police departments and the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, Waste Management trained 200 drivers Wednesday morning to be active in calling authorities when they witness crimes or suspicious activity.
The training is part of Waste Management’s company-wide program called Waste Watch that operates much like neighborhood watches throughout the country.
“Because they’re in the neighborhoods twice a week, they know what belongs there,” said Sheriff Ric Bradshaw. “It’s all about getting people to report things that are suspicious.”
Bradshaw’s last proposal in the watch-thy-neighbor vein drew a bit of backlash recently.
