THE Coffs Coast Advocate would like to apologise unreservedly to Coffs/Clarence local area police commander, Superintendent Mark Holahan, for the contents of a letter published on Monday, May 10.
Our investigations have discovered claims made in the letter were false.
The Advocate also apologises for any embarrassment or incorrect inference the letter made.
Further, the views expressed in the letter are not those of The Advocate in any way.
The Advocate is a strong supporter of the local police service and acknowledges the hard work being done in Coffs/Clarence that is having a significant impact on crime rates.
