Cindy wanted me to run this Police Staffing Report she found on-line. She wants everyone to focus on the bottom of page 5, the McCandliss (PA) Police Dept. The Town has a population of 27,000 and has 28 sworn officers not 48 as Cheshire with basically the same population has. Cindy says the Town is wondering how to fund their pension, she says start with this and cut that staff. They are not needed. Look below to see what she is talking about. They are overstaffed at the Cheshire CT police with rank and file in Cindy’s opinion. Cindy says the Police have double the staff that is needed according to data presented in the report below.
Cindy says the staffing levels are based on calls for service and traffic stops which is the majority of their business in Cheshire, are not calls for service so the staffing is way out of line. She hopes the Town Government will honestly consider this report and reflect on real staffing needs.
