Police Boat

Police boat, Canale di Cannaregio, Cannaregio
Venice, October 2011

“Be aware of petty crime like pickpocketing on the crowded vaporetti, particularly the tourist routes, where passengers are more intent on the passing scenery than on watching their bags. Venice's deserted back streets were once virtually crime-proof; occasional tales of theft are circulating only recently. Generally speaking, it's one of Italy's safest cities.”
(Crime, Frommer's Venice)

Are they going to get themselves a bite to eat?

I didn't know Venice was considered safe. I can see getting distracted by the sights.
