Just like everyone else police officer's have various beliefs, and non-beliefs when it comes to the topic of ghosts, and hauntings. Over the years though I have heard from numerous people that have told us they would never report anything possibly supernatural to the police, particularly ghosts, because of the fear of being labeled crazy.
I have never come across a ghost case that would warrant a call to the police, and tie-up their time, however I seriously doubt a reported belief in seeing a ghost is an automatic trip to the mental ward either.
Last week while doing some research on an unrelated topic I came across this tid bit that I thought may be of interest particularly to those ghost enthusiasts who share our fair city.
On May 30 1998 The Globe & Mail newspaper published an interview with former Metro Toronto Police Chief William McCormack who was flogging his book, Life on Homicide at the time.
When asked if he had ever seen a ghost, McCormack responded, "No, I have had many cases when the hair on my neck stood up. I couldn't explain it. I'm convinced there are people who have."
Very interesting indeed!
