    Crazy story from Atlantic City, NJ

    Some cities in Los Angeles County abolished their K-9 programs because of cost and liability concerns. One of them had the nerve to ask us to send ours to calls in their city, but refused to indemnify us for liability.

      That's why city officials should stay out of the business of the local pd. I didn't think a mayor had that much power to dismantle any unit in the PD. Crazy story though.

        Hmmm... Think about what you just said. City officials should have nothing to do with with their city's police force???

          No, but we do sometimes get that mentality too much.

          But, there has to be a limit as to what politicians can do inside a police department.

            No kidding. Our Commisioner is APPOINTED by the County Executive, and thus does his bidding if he wants to keep his job. So far he has abolished our Highway Patrol command, our Motorcycle squad, changed our Community Oriented Patrol sections hours so he can use them to backfill patrol cars 24/7,
            and tried to give our Warrant Squad away. ALL of this had been at the CE's 'suggestion'. Needless to say, morale is not at an alltime high.

            Oh, and a patrolman is being docked 5 days pay for speaking out against the Commish while off-duty at a public hearing.....

              Sounds like the blue flu is in season.

                It's all about politics and money. Sad but true.

                  That 5 days would be plenty of time for my PBA attorney to launch a wicked attack.
                  Being a good street cop is like coming to work in a wet suit and peeing in your pants. It's a nice warm feeling, but you're the only one who knows anything has happened.

                    My prior agency had its budget cut by the town. They (town) axed the K9 program and my position. Unfortunately, that's how it is.

                      It is without a doubt being contested by the PBA.
