How about some more cops Alma!
Nartatez promised to bring what has been a contentious issue
back for a vote of the full City Council.

Police union president Todd Lynch said the committee has spent too long debating an issue and not enough time addressing the lack of police or the city’s willingness to obey an ordinance mandating 80 police officers.

“I wish the public safety committee, especially the public safety chair, would put as much effort into hiring police officers as they have into this resolution which really has no teeth but has taken up their time for months,” Lynch said.
