Look at Mr. Joel. It is obvious that the city NEEDS cuts in the budget. The police NEED to be cut or even TRIMMED. Would anyone in their right mind be opposed to only having 2 police on patrol at one time? Right now we have five (during both the day and night shift, and all year long).
The police presence and budget on Marco is EXCESSIVE, and the budget is irresponsible. We are paying twice for police protection. This is a fact.
For those of you who are not yet willing to cut the MIPD, lets compromise. Let's try a $2 million budget. Instead of 34 officers, lets try 17. We don't need new high tech equipment every year- the police hardly face any crime.
Although we, THE TAXPAYERS, will still be paying TWICE for police protection- atleast we aren't spending close to $5 MILLION above what we already pay the Sheriff for.
