More cities in California just can't afford their private police departments anymore, with bankruptcy looming and or other pressing money demands are rearing up.

Saving money is what CITY HALL should be doing.

Governments main responsibility is to protect and serve it's tax paying citizens.

Costs of running your own police force is not an inexpensive operation.

The pros and cons of what you want in a police force needs to be looked at and evaluated on a priority list specific to that community.

Law enforcement functions require different skills, think about it, you want a wise and experienced officer on scene to direct the physical aspects of protecting the community.

There are many things to be considered and now the process in is or should be in full swing.

Think about it people, then get involved, it is your town after all.

I reside in San Dimas which offers police services via the L.A. Sheriffs.

Our towns are similar in that they are suburban style, family oriented and offer little in commercial development.

Now San Dimas, California is larger and is probably prone to the potential for more violent crime.

Over the last 25 years I have come into contact with the Sheriff's on numerous occasions and have found them to be professional, cooperative and effective.

Glendora, California should absolutely consider making the change, I think most would be happy with the results.

By the way, I am not associated in anyway with the Sheriff's Dept.

The Glendora City Council and city managers, especially the safety employees, should be ashamed of themselves.

Now the safety employees are whining and want sympathy because finally something is being done to stop their greedy ways.

Douglas Tessitor has streached his mental limits.
