Thank goodness for URGENT! They've been busting crack dealers left and right. How do you think they get them? They bust the addicts and addicts talk...

Before someonemakes any comments about the Police doing their jobs,maybe they should learn how to spell first. Or are they too busy smoking their weed to use spell check?

well most of urgent are cocaine and crack dealers themselves. It's evident to me that when a drug dealer is caught, the police( names will remain unlisted) tell the criminal you sell drugs for me or you dont sell them at all. If offer is refused there charged with more than what they were actually caught with. It's a violation of civil rights, it's unjust, and it has been and probably will remain for years. Another fact... half of the police do cocaine themselves. Why not give them drug test. The outcome would be a disaster I bet.

I bet half of the Police force and urgent are liars. If their so innocent, prove it. They just know they can get away with a lot. What citizens should be concerned about is the abuse of their powers

point blank cops are crooked... I was once beat up by cops over three of them mind you. I am a 112lb.female then i was tazed by two different guns...then thrown to the ground and booted in my jaw....over nothing!!!
I went to court and they had no evidence on me nothing they wouldn't even provide it for my lawyer! I had a major lawsuit but decided on not going forth because I would have to move to due to harrassment.
I was told not everyone of them would lose their jobs!
these losers need to be sorted out from good to bad.
after my experience I still have hope in law inforcement!
there is good out there I know there is....
as for your kids.
keep them away from criminals and crooked cops.
so have a come back on that one!!!!

The police don't seem interested when you call them, almost as if they would rather you didn't get them involved. I know someone who dated someone whose family had members on the Kingston police force, she was totally credible, and she said that the cops in Kingston do drugs and get it from the dealers. Totally corrupt.

I've had drugs being sold in my neighborhood for over 2 years (and the Drug Free School District sign is right outside the house!). I've been told "It's in the right hands",I have provided plate numbers, dates and times and still nothing is done..Nothing but being stroked!!....As far as I'm concerned...USELESS!!

Urgent members are corrupt and do use drugs ! They are also led by a crazy alcoholic that drives police vehicles drunk. Drug test these guys on a random basis and none of them will be around for much longer. Oh...... Maybe they can't cause it's not in their contract but they sure check the corrections side enough. The road patrol and urgent need to be revamped and this county's police force needs a new leader. Don't forget the 2nd in command has a bar right in his office and drinks all the time amongst other things. They need a task force to investigate urgent and bring them to justice but then all their cases and convictions come into question and could cost millions in damages and they don't want that !

The majority of the ulster county sheriffs office is either alcoholics or hooked on opiates ! This is FACT !!!!!! But what the hell right ? Business as usual ! The 4-12 shift goes out and gets shit faced several times throughout the week and then drives home drunk ! The rest just sniff a few oxy's or some coke and then go to work under the influence ! Yay Paul ......great job !
