The citizens who got a referendum on the Copake police department are to be commended. Chatham village residents should have the same referendum.
The state police are professionals with deep institutional back up. One state policeman is worth more than one village police officer.
We already have the state police and the county sheriff in the area. We have multiple highway departments, multiple police departments, multiple courts, etc.
This referendum in Copake is encouraging. The last election in Chatham village was encouraging.
On Sat.August 27, I presented a petition to the Town Bd. signed by 101 citizens of Copake.The petition was for a referendum on the Topic of keeping or ending our Police Dept.This topic should be on the Ballot on Nov.8, 2011. I expect that there will be a few meetings in Town Hall to discuss this matter and to hear both sides.We should also be aware of the history of our Police Dep't and the cost as well. This topic will be discussed by the Town Bd. on Oct.8, at Town Hall.Harvey Weber
