In support of the local police

I would like to commend our local policemen and policewomen who have done their best to protect the citizens of our town. They put their lives on the line for us, every day. Considering the fact that they are seriously understaffed and underpaid, we owe them a debt of gratitude.

Our town is currently reviewing the option of allowing Pinal County to basically take over our local police department. This would include hundreds of thousands of dollars above what we currently pay for our police force. Their proposal also includes a pledge of “zero tolerance” on crime, as well as more efficient services. This comes from a sheriff’s office embroiled in numerous controversies of its own. This is hardly a resume that instills the confidence and trust we are seeking.

I propose, instead, that we invest in our own local police department with additional funding. This would make it possible to have more police officers, improve inadequate equipment and services and, most of all, pay our local heroes what they deserve.

Respectfully,

/s/ Charles S. Davison
