Police Expansion ... For What?

Per the OD, "City police might use Washington Courts building."

OK, let me get this straight ... The city's population has been cut in half . . . Substations have been, understandably, opened on Varick and James Streets because of specific neighborhood problems . . . But the police still need to expand into another new location?

Sorry, but the need is not apparent . . . Taxpayer dollars need to be conserved. Furthermore, locating a police facility in a prime area that is ripe for redevelopment does not seem to be a good marketing move.

It is called building your empire. Once it is here it will only get bigger with no plans for reductions.
