Stimulus to help hire 25 new police officers

Mesa has accepted nearly $6 million in federal stimulus dollars and has dedicated the money to hiring 25 new police officers. This is great news for Mesa, and will help continue trend in reducing crime throughout the city.

The stimulus funds will help this program for the next 3 years, however, the challenge will come when Mesa has to foot the bill for the officers in the fourth year. Fortunately, Mesa has three years to plan for this eventuality, and it would be wise for them to start saving now.

The fact that Mesa is one of the only cities that received their full alotment of stimulus funds for this program makes one wonder if there really is anything to the idea that the Dems are targetting Mesa.
