I'm really disgusted how our council is looking into laying off three police officers. I do understand that one is retiring, but why are we taking two officers off the streets? One of the reasons why I bought a home in this city is because I can leave for work and know that my family is safe.

I think we have a good department and I think we could save money else where. When the economy is getting worse, we NEED more protection....not less.

Yes don't you know that Police and Fire offices are the only people working in our local governments? There are no employees that are of less value than police officers.

I think the reason they are laying off Police officers is to get the people willing to pay more taxes when they ask fo them. And we all know they will ask for them (more taxes).

You see its ok for regular people to live and make due with less money but that just will not do for the people living off those taxes.
