Dallas Official Urges Pullback on Police Hires Through '11

March 09, 2010  | 

Dallas wants to scale back plans to hire 191 additional police officers this year in an effort to curb costs in a time of slumping revenue.

City Manager Mary Suhm told a City Council committee Monday that she thinks the city should hire an additional 120 officers this fiscal year.

That will save the city $1 million but will delay indefinitely a longtime council goal of hiring an additional 200 officers per year until the police force has a ratio of 3 officers per 1,000 residents. Last year, that ratio stood at 2.77 officers per 1,000 residents.

I'am glad you guy's ran that article about the "Peter Princible" last month. If there was a picture in the dictionary for that word they would have to put every politician we have in front of it. This "incompetence" is just another example of it. Every one that has at least 3 brain cells running know's that when we have a bad economy crime's such as robbery, burglary, theft etc goe's up. And since these incompetent nit wit's can't balance thier own check books much less thier city, county, state, or federal budget one of the first thing they do is to take away from the police, fire dept., or education the 3 thing's that we as a people cannot do with out. Instead of the usless crap like midnight basketball, handing out free condome's, or what ever government program that serves no real purpose but to keep said incompetent nit wit's in office. Or it gives them a reason to raise taxe's which is another real bad idea to do in a resession.
