Please publish today’s front page story of our police chief Jane Moran implying we can’t keep Southborough as safe because of budget cuts.

Every community in America is feeling the same pressures to do more with less and many are succeeding in doing just that. Actions that the Police and citizens should be advocating for and doing:
1. Create a policing program that is focused on prevention by empowering citizens to start their own crime prevention efforts on each street. With all the clubs and associations in town, ask key ones to work with the police department to make this happen
2. Identify and ask for citizen volunteers to lead this community wide effort. Make a request at a Town Meeting or at a Selectman’s session for volunteers or post the request on the town’s web site
3. Identify a laison officer who works as a volunteer with other community police departments who has indepth and past police experience to lead this effort
4. Coordinate a town department wide effort to keep everyone alert and to watch for suspicious acitivity. Crime prevention is not just the police department’s responsibility, it is each citizen’s and town deparments’s responsibility –
5. Google search for articles on how other communities are actually doing more with less and reducing the crime rate.
6. Citizens need to realize that hiring a dozen new officers will not stop crime – only involved citzens in collaboration with the police will we ever prevent crime.
