thats dumb. they dont have fuel because they use the cars for everything and expect the town's dwindling resources to cover it. like i said, if they save the fuel for patrols only, and/or use their personal vehicles for rides, then it would be tax deductible. TURN ON YOUR BRAIN.

that may be, but if they needed to take their personal cars out for work, it'd be tax deductible. the town is losing money by letting them galavant about needlessly at their own job's expense.

Most of these revenue "problems" come from the massive retirement benefits that these leaders negotiated. The system is paying out millions of today money for employees of yesterday.

Sorry you are wrong check the facts even if it hurts.
05:35 PM on 11/02/2011
YOU MY FRIEND ARE WRONG! WHILE I BELIEVE POLICE OFFICERS ARE WAY UNDERPAID, IT IS THE RETIREMENT FROM THE UNIONS AND THE COLLECTIVE BARGANING AGREEMENT FROM THE CITY EMPLOYEES THAT DRIVE THE CITY BROKE. BUT YOU KNOW THAT. IT'S NOT FOX NEWS, CBS NEWS, OR ANY OTHER NEWS. IT IS JUST A FACT. DO SOME RESEARCH BEFORE YOU COMMENT OR YOU'LL SOUND LIKE JUST ANOTHER UNEDUCATED LIBERAL!

So Tax cuts have nothing to do with it?
Are you suggesting people work until they die? Who wants an 80 year old cop responding to a robbery in progress?

What a stupid response. It's always the Tea Party, when liberals want to blame and whine. Grow up, Obama is President, The Senate and Congress were controlled by the Dems, and nothing except the rip off Health Care Bill was passed. Obama is still here, and the Dems still control and obstruct in the Senate. And Obama and you libs all think compromise is when everyone does it your way. Until jobs and the economy improves greatly, we are going to have a hard time. What did Obama and you Dems do to improve this problem. Answer-NOTHING.

Hello Criminals,
I am holding my town ransom and thought I would just let you all know.Have a nice day.
Sincerely,
Chief of police
03:41 PM on 11/02/2011
It's called being held hostage. The police are given a budget. When they spend more than that budget THEY have messed up and the public suffers because of it. Before I started crying that the poor police need more gas money I'd start looking for mismanagement of funding from earlier in the year. I'd also start looking for a new police chief who understands how to work with the money he or she has. This story doesn't start at the begining. It would be nice to know how they got to this point to begin with.

Tea drinker.The first thing you think of is mismanaged budget.

That's right cops, your kids will just have to set their own broke arm. Hopefully it will heal. You probably can google a do it yourself site.

Why do you think they can't respond because they don't have the budget for gas. You're such a f..king i d iot. Hope your house experiences the lost of funds for cops and you and yours "enjoy" the consequence.

The officers have nothing to do with the budget. The officers are not claiming they will not respond.

How about not letting the police officers take the cars home and drive around for personal use.

They always pick on us little people. The rich get richer and well, you know. Greed is killing this country!
03:30 PM on 11/02/2011
Isn't it amazing, that every town, county, and state in the country decided it was broke all at the same time. Then of course the democrats always want to threaten you with the lose of police, fire fighters, and teachers. Like that is the only place they can think of to save money. What is wrong with starting with a few of the water cooler gaurds at the DMV? Maybe a few of the tax collectors. Wouldn't need to pay so many taxes if we wheren't paying so many to collect them. I can tell you why not. That doesn't scare the voters as much. What they never tell you, is that police forces do not cost money. They are revenue generators. Any police force. from the smallest to the largest, that is not bringing in more money thru citations etc, than they are costing, has a management problem, and trowing more money at it is not going to cure it.

Police is strictly a local issue. Tax collectors work for the federal Government
08:20 PM on 11/05/2011
Really. Do those taxx collectors who work for the federal government also collect your state income taxx? You local and state sales taxes? Are they collected by those federal taxxx collectors as well? Actually, regardless of who collects what taxes, the fact remains, police dapartments bring in money in the form of fines for citations and any police department that is spending more than they are taking in is being mis managed.
