We need to go a lot further to overall bad police policies. First and foremost we should dispan every city police force and streamline the department's into county police. So there is a police hiarchy in Santa Clara, San Mateo, SF ect.. only. This would save enormous amounts of money for tax payers. It should also apply to Fire depts. Of course, the city council's would all have to agree to fight the unions that would furiously oppose this.

Personally, I think police unions are no longer necessary. I'm a huge labor union supporter but I don't consider police unions to be in the same category.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
