Village Police Departments excluing a few do not offer 24/7 coverage, they are a waste of money. The they all should consolidate with the Sheriff's Department, they have the tools and resources. They should take the Town of Clay for example. The Sheriff's Dept. has to handle these Village calls when there not in service anyway , it doesnt make sence. Look at the Village of Vernon for example; what a joke. The Village cops have a hard time writing a traffic ticket, let alone solving a case.

Ok. You want answers? Here's one for you. All the little police departments in your area are not needed and are an unneeded tax burden. Let's use nym for example. It's a village of 3300 people and shrinking.

Where I live in clifton park it's a town of 37,000 and growing.

There is no clifton park police. We are patrolled by the sheriff and state police. There is zero need for a village of 3300 to have a separate police department.

Those "security patrols" are paid for voluntarily by the business' of clifton park. It's a private security business that patrols the business' here. They hold no police powers but the same as mall security. Try again.

And also consider that this town is almost 40k in population and contains six hotels, a mall, five or six shopping plazas, etc...there's more business and commercial traffic here than in the city of utica.

Please re-read your town's website posting. It patrols neighborhoods. Etc. etc. I don't live in Utica and could care less. I live in a small village that has its own police force-which I happen to believe we don't need. My point is you once again either knowingly or unknowingly lie.

No actually they (all two of them) don't. They don't carry guns and they don't even have red lights on the top of their one explorer...they're blue. You should really check your facts.
