Thursda}; April 12, 2012 N/Warren Town and County News Page Five POLICE CHIEF Concluded from p.1 we haven't been able to pay cash for a car or equip- ment for quite a few years. The result is we pay inter- est and we pay it over a number of vears. The commu- nity keeps growing and that is a good thing. It has grown by about 1,400 residents and doubled in land area since we have last added a police officer. The num- ber of patrol vehicles is the same as when I arrived here in 1999. Obviously we will do the best we can with what- ever we get, but I owe it to the Public and the Police Officers to make sure the information you consider is accurate. When these vehicles are operated at high risk and high speeds, the citizens, the officers and their fami- lies all have a stake in the quality of that equipment and how well they are trained to use it. Our annual statistics were printed in this newspa- per last month. If our residents would like to see them again, we can ask for them to be reprinted. Thank you again for your support.
