Vernon also made the motion to hire yet another part time police officer. I mean really how many do we need? They do nothing now except cost the town money that could be used elsewhere. They do NOT investigate crimes, and do as little work as possible. If you call them they take forever to respond, if at all, and don't ask them to help in any matter because you will get nowhere. Firing Kevin was the worst move they ever made, at least he responded and tried to help and resolve issues. Vernon should rehire the sheriffs and be done with the the PD.Time and again, the PD has shown over the years to be a tax burden to the residents in town and the sheriffs actually did something for the money we paid them. How about a vote on the town meeting ballot to chose between the sheriffs and keeping the PD? I bet you will find the majority will chose the sheriffs.

Clearly, you are either related to Turnley or have an axe to grind. Under the leadership of the current Chief, the department has done a 180 degree turn. I watched the meeting, and thought the new hire was replacing another who departed. All LLEA in the region have similar problems; new hires tend top move up the law enforcement food chain, due to openings caused by retirements, the war, etc. This has been extensively discussed in the press.

The Sheriffs caused their share of headaches, and were considerably more expensive than our local PD. The response you get when you call depends on a large number of variables, including the priority of the call, time of day (they are not on 24/7), and other responses.

Town meeting is coming up. If your comments above are not empty bantor, get a petition, get some signatures, and put it on the town warning. You'll find out with certainty the wishes of the townspeople.

I am neither his relative nor do I have an ax to grind. I do NOT think the town is under better management and I am NOT the only one with that opinion.
Maybe you should of read the article about the police audit that was done under Turnley, Mary Beth did not get a shining report. Her experience is also lacking. Nothing has changed only the names.
My opinion still stands I do NOT believe the PD needs another part time officer.
