Guest Eneerg Posted November 3, 2008 Report Share Posted November 3, 2008 The Harrison PD presently has a complement of 53 Officers and 19 civilians according to the 2007 Uniform Crime rate for a poulation of 13,942 and 1.2 Sq, miles. The notion that the HPD doesn't have enough Officers is absurd. Crime went down 9.35% from 2006 (406) crimes to 2007 (368) crimes. I keep on reading that there is a lot of crime in Harrison and not enough cops, when the truth is that crime is down to its lowest level in many years. The civilians that replaced officers as dispatchers and in the Traffic Bureau are doing a good job. 53 Sworn Officers for a population of 13,942 and a land area of 1.2 Square miles is more then most towns with an average of 3.78 Officers per thousand. For example, an Ocean County Town has a population of 22,000 with 47 Officers and 34 Square miles to patrol. It has 2.13 Officers per thousand. So stop crying that you don't have enough Officers and do your job. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
