The Atwater Police Department was cut to 26 officers from 36 in 2007. Our officers have voluntarily reduced their salaries. Concerned citizens need to increase funding by approving the Measure H. Having been a police volunteer for
14½ years, I have observed times when injured or sick officers have affected response time and performance
of duty. We need more officers and replacement equipment. This new funding will be used only for public safety and monitored by an oversight committee. Please vote for Measure H.
