We need a STRONGER police presence in town. The buglaries are getting out of hand now. Hope everyone is ok !

Rather than having multiple police cars hiding on School Rd (by fire dept, shopping center and/or school lot) waiting to ticket a speeder as the speed limit changes at those junctures, a better use of police officer time would be patroling the blocks so that burglars are detered and residents are safer. More emphasis should be placed on patroling and less emphasis should be placed on generating revenue from tickets. Just my two cents,
