As the saying goes, "NO ONE WANTS THE POLICE, UNTIL THEY NEED THE POLICE." Typical scenerio. The local government mismanages and the police department and local citizens pay for it.

Now this is a real joke.Being a resident of North Versailles all of my life and being quite knowledgable in reference to the township's statement that they are $800,000.00 in debt makes you just want to choak somebody.When you take in consideration that we have so many businesses [many of them large and producive as well]within the township a blind man could see that we should have a surplus and not a deficit.Oh, but hold on now.See it was brought to my attention that the money was stolen.How much credence this has is a mystery to me however all of the tax money collected from all of these places of business went somewhere .Oh yes it did.Now from what I understand our police station is fortunate to have their electric and gas on.It is being said that our police dept is going to be left go completely and possibly replaced with the state police.Perhaps the worst part of this whole scenario for all of us who reside here is that we have already been sharing our police force with two other jurisdictions for quite sometime now and just recently 1/2 of our policemen were laid off not leaving enough of them to go around.I have not always been in agreement with the police however I do respect them and we need them.Even with all of that aside they are not bad guys they deserve their jobs too.Belinda S.
