City Budget Cuts

Posted By: Dr. Frugal in Economics on 03/31/2008 at 08:36:23

Would you want this in your city· Yikes, I wouldn't. I don't have a problem with civilian "report takers" for the fire department but when you're talking about having non-sworn civilians replacing offers to "respond to burglaries" I think you're just inviting trouble. If my house were burglarized and someone in a "polo shirt" showed up to help me I would feel even more at risk. I realize times are tough and everyone is cutting back (including our cities) but maybe adding to the police and fire departments with people like you and me isn't the most cost-effective measure.
