My step-son is an APD officer and with the way Anderson is getting to be we need MORE police officers to protect each other on these dangerous calls. We don't need to get rid of the officers we have. To the one's who want to get rid of the officers just remember your not out there no one is pointing a gun at you, you don't need back up. I love my step-son and I want him home safe every night. Rethink your choice. You walk the halls of your office they walk the streets of our town.

Both of my cousins are policemen and one of them works in Anderson. The fact that they even consider cutting the force is awful! They put their lives on the line everyday to protect family, friends and community!

I am mother of an Anderson Police Officer and I want my sons back covered by other officers. I think their is many other places that could be cut if money is a problem. The trips all the officials take, really is that needful right now? When your city is drowning take care of it first then help others. Open up your eyes people to what is really important.
