The Derry Police do a great job and it's the people that are always in trouble that don't like the police. The people that get help from the police department don't speak up so you only get one side of the true story.

Derry should have Disbanded there police dept long ago. More so now that they are being sued. But then taxpayers will just pick up the tab for this in the form of higher taxes.

my guess in ryan got arrested to stopped by the Derry popo before. I agree with Dan, the people that complain are the ones that got arrested. I think they do a good job. Heck people dont speed in town cause they no..Say that about latrobe (SPEEDWAY)

And as for the person that made this thread i read in a previous post his name is Ken Anthony. He was the biggest drunk in Derry before he moved. Hell i heard one time he got drunk and he got stuck under his bathroom vanity. HAHA..plus he has no room to talk about weight watchers.

If you think the police's only job is to hand out tickets your wrong, they need to do much much more than just sit around handing out speeding tickets. Look at all the drugs in Derry and all the robberies of home and no one getting caught. I vote didband them and let the State Police do the job. Then we go a 60K lawsuit now but I won't go into how I feel about there here, may be kids reading this.

i dont think that handing out tickets is the only job that police do i was just using that as an example. I think that you people think that the police should be able to wave a wand to end all crime. Look at Derry TWP, it has alot more crime than the Borough ever has had and the state isnt solving any of those. and as for that lawsuit, law enforcement gets sued all them time, why dont we see what happens before we hand the dept out to dry.

I live in Blairsville but lived in Derry most of my life. Derry always had a half decent police force but in the last few years under Randy Glick it's gone down hill.

Derry should have disbanned it's Police Dept years ago. It would be much cheaper to let the PSP do the job. Taxes are high here water and sewage rates are a joke here more so now that we went to this montly billing they can't even get the dates right on the bills. All this ads to resons why many can't sale homes that are for sale here, who in there right mind would even consider buying a home here in Derry. 9 thousand gallons of water and sewage cost close to 200 bucks, and 9 thousand is the least amount you can be billed for every 3 months. How many Sr Citizens can afford that if they live alone. The min should be more like 5 thousand. Disband the Police Force and get cost in control and maybe Derry will once again become a good place to live and raise a family. Until they do all the above don't even consider buying a home here.

I live in Derry Boro and in my opinion I think the police do a good job in our town. However, I would like to see them taking more action on the drugs. They do hand out alot of traffic tickets but I'd much rather go 25 or 35 mph and stop at stop signs and a traffic light than see the boro have to raise taxes or something to replace the lost revenue. As far as the drug issue in Derry goes, as with any small town, I think there are more users than dealers. How do you stop that? However, there are people selling drugs in this town and that gives you a starting point. Disbanding the police is a very bad idea. I believe that they have the people's best interest in mind. I agree 25mph around the lake is bull**** but just think what it would be like if a state trooper drove thru a few times a day if that and maybe posted up to catch speeders once a month.

The Boro should have let the state take over the police duties years ago, as well as letting Johnson go from the street dept. Talk about a rude public employee it's Johnson. Everyone in town knows the only reason he got the job in the first place was because of his father in law now Deceased.

Let the state take it over. Good way to shave a few 100k off the budget.

Derry long ago should have disbanned it's police dept and had the stste police do the job. With town residents getting smaller and samller it's become a Tax burden on those that live here to keep it going. Now we got a 60K lawsuit pending caused by one of police. It's time has come and it's time to close the dept. And to those that say anyone that wants to close the dept has had runins with them, I'm 55 and never have any problems with them nor have I gotten any tickets. So I'll end that before you throw back at me.

for all of you that think that you should close the dept take a look at Derry TWP. You think the Borough is bad and has alot of crime the TWP is worse. It takes the state like 2 hours to come if you have a problem if they even come at all. What do you think if you close the Dept the borough is going to LOWER taxes. Wont happen. you all may have grips with them but they do their job.

Derry Police isn't much better, you call them you might be lucky and see them. And it's also hours later if you do. It's easier to be sitting at BP or out at Red Apple then answer you calls.

One can't complain about how fast Derry Police answer your call but when they do show they are more like Barney Fife in how they do things. I'm for outsourcing the job to the state. About the only job they well is handing out traffic tickets.
