You can't force parental involvement. Many parents see schools as holding pens for their kids, a place kids go to give them a break. Good parenting is not something government can create. I agree with you about using civilians on construction sites.

You dolt when cops are used on a construction project the contractor pays for the use of the cops. The City doesn't pay overtime for a cop working a construction detail. Please team up with Cardimino and run as a pair on the Moron ticket.
But there has been a lot of O.T. by the cops! Mostly because we don't have enough of them apparently!

Yes, the construction company pays the police officer. But they are required to hire police. It seems that those jobs could go to people who are unemployed, or under employed, not to police who already have good jobs and use construction detail to make extra money or to supplement a pension.

That's a state thing not local. The police force is a large voting group which is why its hard to change.

don't think it affects pension- these are outside detail jobs and yes extra pay--could be wrong on this-

The construction out fit pays the cops 30 something dollars and that figures into the price of the job. Then we the taxpayers pay the price. I am sure an unemployed farther or mother would do that for half the cost to feed their kids. The cops are very greedy. They already have a good job and many good perks. The state of mass is the only state that does this. Plus they sit in their car that we supply and run the air or heat burning OUR gas all day.

oh no, not more ridiculous conspiracies. people that think like this should be forced to take a mental evaluation.

it wouldnt matter if it was a everyday citizen or a officer of the law. the pay is the same either way. you make it out to seem as though the cops are doing something illegal or the city is likely to only hire officers. that is total bullcrap and you know it.

maybe you should read up on public safety and see just what training it requires. you just cant put out any joe smoe to do a job like that. they are licensed in their field and officers are already trained for it. you dont think they call them public safety for nothing, do you?

same old moron constantly posting the most ridiculous crap.

If you can train cop to direct traffic then you can trade a monkey to do the job.

Actually, I DO think Joe Schmo could direct traffic. It's done in other states.

The only state in the whole USA to have construction sites is Mass.
