    East Pittsburgh, PA – East Pittsburgh residents gathered on Monday to express their concerns about the rise in violent crime and the lack of police officers patrolling their neighborhood just eight months after they disbanded the East Pittsburgh Police Department.

    The East Pittsburgh Borough Council voted to dissolve the boroughÂ’s police department in the wake of the officer-involved shooting death of Antwon Rose.

    So they disbanded their small police department without having specific arrangements for dedicated coverage, and now they're upset? Guess they're experiencing why municipal agencies exist in the first place. Doesn't exactly take a rocket scientist to figure out how that would play out...

    Milano, Texas dissolved their police department in 2016 (I think) because of costs, but they had worked out a deal with the Sheriff to take over policing. Milano's population was like less than 500.

    Or declare that from now on employers must bestow full time benefits to workers who work 30 hours per week rather than 40 and then act dismayed as employers start hiring people but only offer 24 or so hours per week.

    It's like the Democrats are too stupid to realize that people are not as stupid as they are.

    Ya know, I used to try to be careful differentiating between "liberals" and "Democrats", but I can't think of too many that are not both.

    Indeed. For small towns, they can save money by having a contract with the local sheriff's office to provide dedicated deputies where the town pays for the deputies' salaray and benefits. They're still saving money because of administrative overhead and fixed capital expenses like a building, etc.

    That's how we do SROs for our school system. The SROs are employed by us, but the schools have a contract where they pay us to provide the service. The school is paying their salaries and they work AT the school and under their direction, but we have ultimate control. The school system likes it because they don't have to run their own police department.
