Police priority? Positive
http://www.timesheraldonline.com/letters/ci_2...

I totally agree with Chris Thomas ("More police ... period", March 28). According to statistics, Vallejo's police department is understaffed by about 50 percent compared with other cities of our size. No money should be spent on "extras" until the police department is fully staffed

The number of Neighborhood watches in Vallejo is increasing, as citizens are trying to reduce crime in their neighborhoods. But we need MORE POLICE ... period.

Another swipe at Brown's nonsense PB experiment. There'll be more, lot's more. More police is recognized as Priority 1 to all but the determined dreamers of the "new" Vallejo.

ever since our imported activist community got involved with the city's business, we have experienced a steady string of nothing significant to speak of. mare island for one thing is an embarrassment driving by it on 37. it looks like we just haven't got the whatever to do something about it. the activists did not get the university village, high tech, or movie studio they preferred, so the area just languishes. i remember one fellow telling the mayor that the activists will always be with us criticizing the city's plans. i remember mrs. schivley saying we had "analysis paralysis", that is very true, the staff spends a lot of time addressing concerns from the activists until they just give up and move to another city, such as our economic development director. that is a shame, to me anyway.

"benicia woman robbed in gateway plaza"
typical; young coon, broad daylight.
stay in benicia where it's safe, or bring an well-armed escort to blow a punk into confetti.

What makes you think it will work this time - we had as much crime throughout 2000-2010 and our Police department was bloated.
We are still paying the bills and will for decades to come ... exclamation point!

You are out of your friggin mind!

What will stop this? More money to the non-profits and charities. Is this how the Episcopalians fix problems? Just wondering?

The upcoming city-wide vote on PB projects should also allow citizens to vote to abandon the concept altogether and use the money to fund more police staffing.

How about this - as people enter Vallejo they will receive a Police escort for the entire time of their stay. One for One.
Didn't help having tons of cops before, will NOT help now.
Have the Mayor deal with the issues or buy a bullet proof jacket - those are your choices.
Having more Police is not an option. Deal with it.
So you are saying we should just accept the level of crime and violence and learn to live with it?

Hell NO!
I AM saying that more Police is not the answer, unless you have one to one coverage ... as good as they are, they can't be everywhere all at once.
The Mayor could implement a zero tolerance for criminals and publicly declare Vallejo a community that is "mad as hell and not going to take it anymore". If that means - he needs to shame the criminals and families of criminals (both the ones with guns and the ones owning properties where all they do is collect rents on rundown buildings without regard for who is renting them) and post addresses of problem properties - do it. Start towing cars that are not registered, pull over vehicles that are blaring loud music or doing doughnuts in the middle of the street and impound them for at least one month (1st violation) and fine them (also known as revenues for the city).
Cracking down on the little things that will interrupt their lives would be a start - no one up to no good wants to be in the spotlight and be harassed.
Like cockroaches, they prefer to remain off the radar. They will clear out of Vallejo fast - just watch. Vallejo, it's time to turn on the lights!
Hey, poop for brains. What you want done (means - he needs to shame the criminals and families of criminals (truly a dumb $hit idea!)(both the ones with guns and the ones owning properties where all they do is collect rents on rundown buildings without regard for who is renting them) and post addresses of problem properties - do it. Start towing cars that are not registered, pull over vehicles that are blaring loud music or doing doughnuts in the middle of the street and impound them for at least one month (1st violation) and fine them (also known as revenues for the city).) requires manpower.

We do not have that manpower. Along with your dumbass world of rainbows and unicorn world you also live in the Yossarian world of Catch-22.'Turning on the lights' as you want them requires manpower to flip the switch and not some whiner with a clapper or remote controlle,r dumbazz!

"We do not have that manpower" Who, we? Who, we? Who, we?
The Mayor should set the tone, elected officials set the policy, city staff and police, working together - enforce bylaws and laws.
If anything - we need more city staff and creative ways to raise revenues while cleaning this place up. More Police is not the answer.
Been there, done that from at least 2000 to 2010. Ain't going back.
then you should start making regular appearances at council meetings to denounce the hiring of more police and to stop recruiting. that is what the plan is. you are so far out of whack!
