The Englishtown Police Department is considering layoffs of police officers because of financial constraints.  This is honestly something which I cannot recall happening in my 17 years of legal experience.  Lets hope the municipal board in Englishtown forgets this thought.

In my experience, actions by Boards which adversely effect the police are met with one of two results. The cops either stop writing tickets in retaliation or do just the opposite in hopes of getting the attention of taxpayers. Either result makes for unpleasantries.  I am sure there are other areas that can be trimmed before laying off cops.
