    Perhaps they could look at what they charge volunteer, and non profit organizations like “The Kids of Steel”. Substantial increases in hourly rates does not seem very community-minded.

  2. Mark says:

    Hmm, didn’t read any threats.

  3. Sam says:

    Jack, considering some of the threatening comments that have been posted on CountyLive regarding disruption of the proposed wind energy projects in South Marysburgh, I expect that you will be seeing many more OPP officers in the southern part of The County as soon as Gilead Power begins construction of the Osterander Point project.

  4. Jack says:

    Southern end of the County doesn’t exist as far as I can see. If their is an incident they round up a posse and ride out to take care of it. We need more proactive and less reactive policing . Some of the nonsense that goes on ,may not if the offenders were concerned that a patrol car just might come by. There is a lot more out here other then County road 10 and a provincial park.

  5. Douglas Monk says:

    I think overall police services are excellent.
    Some work needs to be done on radio communications between OPP and the County Fire Department.

    I think overall an excellent job however we don’t see you very often in Wellington. Have heard there are lots of drug problems here. Would also very much like to see more speed control on roads in town areas. This winter has forced pedestrians into roads because of so much ice and snow blocking sidewalks; we are literally being passed by vehicles doing upwards of 80 kms in a 50 kms zone all within a few inches of our bodies as we walk. My dog and I were actually pushed into a snow bank from the wind force of a dump truck speeding past us opposite the new lcbo in Wellington recently. I hope something can be done about the excess speeding problem so we can be safe when walking.

  7. MI says:

    It is outrageous for a community like PEC to be paying the amount of money we do for policing. It is the 3rd highest expense in the 2014 budget. More than twice as much as fire protection,and a multiple of 16 other budget categories. The fact that their services and costs are non-negotiable is unbelievable. And big increases are still coming. How do we stop this big fat machine that overfeeds itself at our expense?

  8. Verna D says:

    Wish I could be there. My hat goes off to the police services for keeping Prince Edward County residents safe considering the influx of tourists from May to October. You can still walk down town Picton at any time day or night and feel safe.
