Chief Carey is trying to scare the public with his chattering. The cops never do anything anyway. It takes forever for them to get to you and they usually are parked talking to a girl on a parking lot. In every other city, county or state there is 911. These are duplicated services.

Glad to c the police sticking together. Every council member was opposed to senate bill 5,(because it would effect them) but yet they want to install pages from it to the police contract! Shame on u council!! I surely hope none of the council hope to continue in a political career after the decisions u r making now!

And just for the record.......
The Trimming the fat would be deleting a benefit specialist, code enforcer, and deputy finance director! Not public safety!!!!

City council makes 100 bucks a month, I doubt any of them care to continue in this sesspool of corruption. The unions are what are causing the layoffs. They will not agree with negotiations.

The community is beginning to see how ipd works. Everyone seems to be getting caught up in everything. Shame. Put the pieces of the puzzle together. Rich told his buddy at the laidback, that he couldn't run again so he didn't care who he hurt.

wow, Waldo asked Chief Carey about (3) tickets that were written last month. Chief appeared to stutter quite abit. Interesting how Rich had to have Mrs. Ohio come to meeting and hug him. What was that about?
Fire dept. is more important than police.
