It's fairly obvious they had too many cops to begin with. I really don't believe violent crime is an issue in that area.

Chesterfield spent too much money on FRILLS and now they don"t have the money to do the JOBS they were HIRED (VOTED) to do . To save FACE they claim a budget short fall and use the LAYOFF procedure to cover there A++. I always thought GOVT was here to SERVE & PROTECT its EMPLOYER the TAX PAYER not SCREW & IGNORE its EMPLOYER the TAX PAYER . Somethings wrong with THIS PICTURE and ALL PICTURES IN AMERICA !!!! The AMERICAN PEOPLE better WAKE UP to all these PICTURES across the STATES and CORRECT there VOTEING MISTAKES before ( IT"S TOO LATE )

Wow why don't they look at the city cars that are being used for PERSONAL USE. EVERYDAY, EVERY WEEKEND. Theres where they need to get a major cut back. Isn't it funny how the people that lost their jobs are the people that are the lowest paid, put their lives on the line and have to drive their own cars, pay their own insurance, car maintenance. And yet they lost their jobs. When the others are driving city vehicles every where and spending our money for their pleasure. MMMM Whats wrong with this picture. Look at all city vehicles and who are driving them, Should they be? Isn't their pay enough. have them drive to work and pick up a co. car like millions of others and leave it there when they get off at 5. Sounds logical to me. Oh thats right I don't work for the city.
