Other major cities are reducing their police forces. We have the lowest crime rate in history. Chronic criminal activity like drug dealing and burglary are better treated through social services. Requiring higher educational requirement for officers would also mean fewer officer are needed. And officer should never be allowed to work overtime except for the city.
I suggest you...keep the Seattle Public Pools open, and send every Seattle public school student to one for swimming lessons. It is a matter of public safety. We must maintain the facilities in order to educate and protect our kids.
I suggest you implement red light cameras at most red lights in the city. This would raise millions in needed revenue and discourage dangerous lawbreaking.
But please, find a more local contractor that is not based in Arizona.
I suggest you eliminate the SPD horse patrol and move officers to street patrol.
