Commission agrees to hire more police

The City's budget meeting was a success last night for Coconut Grove neighbors who had demanded more police officers on the streets in light of the uptick in crime these past few months. The meeting went well into the night before the final vote.

It was a unanimous vote and the budget will be amended. 95 new police officers will be hired and be on the streets by spring, about 25 will hit the streets by the end of this year.

Police officers who were present preferred to have their benefits returned (salary and pension) before new officers were hired.

It Does not Matter if there are more police. When the economy is getting worse crime gets worse. For example look at the gables mansion that got robbed the other day.Its A GATED COMMUNITY ! with 24 hour security and its own police detail.And guess What happened? So keep dreaming that more police is the answer to crime.
