What is the deal with Gate City? Why do they keep hiring uncertified people to be Police Officers? I know they need Officers
but why keep hiring uncertified people when i know for a fact that someone certified with seven years experience has applied several times with no luck. And he has worked for them before so he already knows the town. It is a waste of my and your money if you ask me. they hire thier friends or thier friends kids instead of qualified people. the council and mayor are a joke and need to be replaced.
i agree

Or they are afraid the Zomboies will invade their bodies. I heard one escaped when the movie was filmed in GC.

Or they dont want the right person in there to break up thier little corruption ring. Just like the mayor uses the council to pass new town ordanances to suit his personal buisness wants and needs. or the councilman who's buisness gets town bids

GCPD please don't let this small group of narrow-minded and jealous people get to you. You are doing a fine job. Gate City is not a metropolis. We don't have major problems. The police are doing a fine job, especially at Grogan Park dealing with some of the thugs that were hanging out there. Some of you people just love to complain about everything, and then rationalize it with some vast conspiracy theory.

You'd have to look long and hard to find anything as useless as the Gate City town government. It's filled with self-serving jerks who only look after their own interests. I saw in the county paper where the mayor wants to concentrate on tourism now. Give me a break! Who wants to spend their vacation in Gate City? And why are the water bills now 50% higher than surrounding areas? Is that where the town works guy bought all the new copper pipe and sold it as scrap?

why would any one pic on such a great police force? they are always doing their best giving 110% on the job of pulling over Young girls, women and saying they noticed them cross the yellow line. now dont all you nice folk talk about them no more, this is enough of the trashing of the PD in the city.

They need a police force to write tickets so they'll have money to pay the police force. They're useless. If anything serious happens, they have to call in the county or state to handle it.

The GCPD is a joke! They hire a bunch of overzealous kids that think they are the God-Almighty. If they were to really get into a situation, the town would be owned by someone else! A bunch of smarta$$ b*tches is all they are!!
