I keep forgetting what a high crime area we live in.

This is only part of the story ......don't forget we just had the chief retire at a poultry pension of over 80K per year ,for 21 years of service .....just think if he lives another 25 years it will just cost us ...oops our kids another 2 million ...plus all the chief that will retire in between ....can you say unsustainably at best

I am not against public service employees being paid with public funds for a job well done. What I am against is the notion that there are duplicate services and hierarchies in all these small NJ municipalities. There really is no logical reason that Rumson, Fair Haven, Little SIlver, and Red Bank do not combine their Police forces and have a single Captain for that entire force. There is no safety justification or even a crime related justification for having so much duplication.

A raise in this environment is crazy. No wonder our taxes needed to be adjusted so high. I agree that combining the forces would generate a decent amount of saving. Call it the two rivers police force.
