I've never had a problem with any of the Derry Police nor have I ever gotten a ticket from them. But I think the time has come where this very small community has to disband it's police force and let the State take over or they need to join forces with Latrobe or Blairsville.

You don't have "Give them an enema" listed as an option. That would probably solve all the cop issues in Derry.:p

The best thiung Derry could do for there police force is to remanage it, the police cheif they have now does nothing. Crime is high in Derry, Drugs etc yet he sits back and does nothing. I could name 6 differnet people on N. Chestnut Street that have been dealing drugs for years and many people here know it yet they have never been busted. WHY?

Town council should let the state police do the job.

Just to let you know that if we would let the state take over then you are looking at a $100 per person in your house tax hike. They might not be perfect but at least you do not have to wait for hours to have police service. If the state would take over you are looking at a 2 hour wait for them to show up.

I guess the questions are does the revenue that the police dept generates cover its costs. Are there federal or state grants? How much of a percentage of the boro's taxes collected do they get? Does anyone know how it actually works? I should start attending a few of the boro's meetings. When are they? Do they have meetings? Can anyone go?
Yes there are meetings that the public can attend. We meet on the first and second Monday of every month. The police do take up a percentage of your tax dollars ant that percentage is calculated in mills. I am not sure what the exact millage is but if you ask Lori at the boro office she would be able to tell you.

Who ever is running the show needs fired! Yes the Mayor, why do you think she is retired FBI any way? Too much waste in spending, no leadership, the officers are good people, but lack no direction. What Dery needs more of is leadership, not bull crap excuses. Why do we need an unmarked cruiser, a explr, and now a police dog that is allowed to break the law and be walked around the lake wher we get our drinking water from? TRy and see if you can get away from breaking this law, I just might and see the town at Mr. Biliks?

As it should be. Why should the rest of PA pay for your police protection?

I agree with you, that is why we need to repair, replace, or even remodle the department. The maor could not fix the problem, and throwing money at something bad is not the real answer at all. I want to help make it better, I am speaking out, attending meetings, and voicing my rights as a tax paying citizen of the borough. We wil become better, and clean up the actions of a few that are on the wrong agenda.

Not I Derry, is still Derry, not Dairy, like the farm. The police force is filled with good people, not a good leader. lets don't let one bad apple spoil the whole bunch, cut it off where the problems stems from, not the people who are trying. I have talked to several of them, and they are very good people stuck in a bad suitation thats all. Keep the faith, November is around the corner, for council and the mayor.........be afraid, be very afraid, the people will speak loud and clearly, the primaries were just a small example of how upset the whole town really is. Oh and by the way most people on council read these articles, so speak your peace, it is workingQ

Quit bashing them. They are good people. If you can do better, then why don't you become a law enforcement officer.
