I have to agree with Donna Pittman’s letter Saturday (“Tax for added officers is a good investment”).

On April 3 we get a chance to hire close to 40 new police personnel – seven or eight office and more than 30 street cops. After the shooting at Independence Center this year and the sad memories of Bannister Mall, we need more feet on the street.

I don’t care if the money is already there or not. They are not going to hire more officers without more money, and for me on a fixed income, $6 a month is a bargain.
