This is nothing but an attempt by York city to find funding to help fight the city's crime problems. The surrounding municipality's resources would quickly be shuffled to deal with York city issues as opposed to providing better coverage overall.

If there is a serious effort starting to regionalize, then regionalize everyone and not just the surrounding areas of York City. Eliminate all of the overhead and redundancy of multiple police and fire departments. Quit building new facilities and create a "York County Police" force with a northern and southern command, with one chief and two captains and eliminate numerous overlapping administrative jobs and salaries.

Then go to work on the school districts...

No? I didn't think so...

So instead there is $78,000 being spent for window dressing. Our tax dollars at work.

I am all for having professional law enforcement services, but as a taxpayer, who pays his taxes, I wonder when do we get a break. I live in an area that is covered by a regional police department, which is expensive. I also pay for State Police service, and York County Sheriff's service. Shouldn't there be some kind of discount for those of us who pay for all these services. I can't help but think that guys like me are paying way too much, to take care all of those areas where they don't pay for services, or where services are abused, like in York City. Why not one bill for one police service, period.

Here is another example of why at birth, the sperm flow should be turned off on all males....and then,and only then, turned back on at 20 years of age...IF and only then if the male has shown through his first twenty years on earth that he is a responsible,caring human being, shall the flow of life be reinstated to him.

A savage,drug using adult that has spent his informative first years on earth, in and out of prison for robbing,stealing,mugging,rapin g,terrorizing others and disregard for human life.....you get the idea.
These males are one of the causes of all the fatherless children out there that depend on entitlements and handouts that are bringing this economy to its knees,through taxes going up an up for public safety and all the associated cost that goes with it.

These types of scum of ALL races,colors,religious beliefs,world wide, DO NOT need and should NOT have the ability to bring another human being into this overly crowded planet, to live off of the hard working, law abiding others.

If my plan above was put into place,we would only need Andy and Barney..and on special occasions Deputize Floyd and Goober during Parades and Bike Night,that should do it.

This is Harold and I approve this message!
