How pathetic the township is. Considering that Lawrence Township is the third biggest township in the state and has approximately 7,500 residents and the police dept gets around 3,000 calls a year, it is inexcusable to only have 7 officers employed in the department. Hell, Clearfield Borough probably has almost double that amount and has nowhere near the area or the call volume that the township has. No matter what, the stupidvisors will always have an excuse as to why they can't hire more officers.

It's also time to consolidate. The township-borough concept is outdated and inefficient. We all use the same roads, same water, same sewage system, same schools, etc. No need for two separate police stations, eliminate the expense of the LTPD building and hire more officers. No need for two separate governments, tax codes, borough/township codes.

It is inexcusable! There have been a minimum of three burglaries overnight the last three nights in a row. Y? Hmmm only one or no township officers on duty overnight and everyone is aware of it. Y the township residents aren't outraged I will never understand. They will never vote for the tax increase being put on the ballot in November. If it would go through the "management" will find a way to use the money for other reasons. One officer on duty per shift is just not safe. The state usually only has a car or two on and are usually in outlying areas with extended response time. Maybe when a twp supervisor has a police emergency and no one is there to respond things will change. Be so glad you are out of here Matt. For once, glad to live in the Boro. Even if we don't have a code enforcement officer that knows any codes!

How about that vote for tax increase? 5 or 6 mils, is it?
