The plan in Belleville is to take a police officer from the force and put the officer in crime-free housing. Now that makes one office short for the force. God forbid one officer gets sick or hurt.
It is said we would replace the officer with a new one. Most important, when does the police academy start? How long will we be short?
Question: Do we need to put a experienced officer in crime-free housing ? Keep the experienced officer for protecting the citizens from crime. Are we thinking of the citizens are the landlords first?
