  1. There are indications that hiring will ramp up, yes.
  2. Although I cannot speak to the fire side at all, Edgemont could easily continue using Greenburgh Town PD. Many villages in New York have agreements with the Towns that encompass them.

  4. Unmarked SP patrols have been back for several years now.
  5. Is the Union advocating not providing mutual aid? Given several recent incident alerts where they accepted mutual aid into their city, this incident certainly seemed reasonable I would think. And they probably could have declined the additional 1&1.
  6. That helps bring things into a bit of perspective. Do any other agencies carry these devices?
  7. It does seem like this will be hard to justify, barring some compelling reason.
  8. OK, so enlighten us with your "inside information."
  9. Do not try an introduce open-mindedness, common sense or any attempt to try to get to the bottom of this story. It will delay the mob mentality response, which must proceed unabated! Flying off the handle at the slightest slight, real, perceived or completely imagined, is the way to get things done!
  10. Responsible crime scene units typically do not respond with lights and sirens. Buffy crime scene units, well that's another story. Much risk, little benefit.

  12. If the wall is raised to 50 feet next year, we'll have to take that into account when spec'ing out new ladder trucks.
  13. That looks like a NJ seal.
