As civilian complaints officer, Smith is responsible for policing the police when residents choose not to take complaints of official misconduct through the usual channels - the department's own internal affairs division. But in his three weeks on the job, no one has brought him any complaints.

Woodland Drive in West Caln Township is as steep as a ski slope and as hazardous as an obstacle course. And those are only some of the problems with the street, according to one local resident. At a township meeting Monday night, Woodland Drive resident Elizabeth Weaver told the Board of Supervisors that there was no speed limit posted on the 500-yard stretch of road wedged between Sandy Hill and Cambridge Roads, just north of Route 340. "Cars come racing down this short-cut route, and police say they can't do anything about it because there is no sign posted," said Weaver.

What do you do when one of your neighbors tinkers with cars until the wee hours of the morning, spills oil on your driveway, then spray-paints in his garage until the fumes seep into your child's bedroom?

The neighbor has a scanner, they said, which alerts him before the police arrive. Area residents identified the alleged offender as George Custodio, who was not at the meeting and could not be reached for comment.

The number and the specific nature of the complaints were not made public when the board met Monday, but police Chief Jay Groce has said he believes that the residents' complaints stemmed from Wilson's "aggressive manner" in following up complaints last summer about youths riding unlicensed motorcycles and dirt bikes in the area.
