What does Alamo lose in the new P-2B committee?

Original post made by Hal Bailey, CDSI Research, Alamo, on Feb 4, 2011

Dear Jessica,

On February 8, 2011, CCC-BOS will provide consent to appoint a new P-2B Police Services Committee for Alamo. Critical talent from the current committee will be eliminated and the replacement appointee has no public safety or organization background to serve in such important duties. You have been provided background for a story that would interest your readers, "What does Alamo lose as a result of a new P-2B committee?"

Can you answer that question?

The 'old committee" did not understand much of how they were funded, less about what extra police services Alamo wanted in a time of constrained economies, and kept doing the same policing year after year; ie providing police services to businesses in the downtown and provide school resource services to elementary and middle school students.

No redirection to increased robberies; no follow-up on property recovery; no neighborhood Watch programs. No action when the Valley substation has had many reductions in staffing and relocations.

Also it is five individuals who are being appointed on to this commitee not one as the writer above seems to think.

Good decision to replace as many of them as possible.

Dear Jessica,

I assume that you moved this exchange to your home page so Alamo neighborhood, business district and community groups could fully detail the issues of P-2B reconstitution with new chairman, members and control by Mary Piepho and staff. I can't imagine that any Alamo region resident would need to be a journalist as your replacement. The original posting asked you to provide the analysis and journalism for this very important loss of community relationship with P-2B.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
