Should Town Have More Officers on the Street?

Patch wants to know your thoughts on having another police captain or more officers on the streets.

The to limit the to having three rather than four police captains on its employee roster.

Currently, there are three police captains, but Mayor James Barberio and Police Chief Anthony DeZenzo want to promote Lt. Jeffrey Storms to captain to help oversee the Office of Emergency Management, which is now part of the PPD.

Council members Michael dePierro and Paul Carifi Jr. argue that the department has too many employees in upper ranks and not enough patrolmen and detectives. Carifi says Deputy Chief Paul Philipps or Storms—as a lieutenant—can oversee OEM capably.

All of these men are employed by the town's residents, so Patch wants to know: What do you think?

Take the Parsippany Patch poll and illuminate your thoughts in the comments so that your mayor, council and police chief know your opinions on the matter.

This Mayor couldn't care less what the public says on this or any other issue. He'll do whatever he wants and the lemmings will re-elect him in a landslide come election day.

9-the officers on these jobs you are referring to are working on their day off! Away from their families and still at risk. Why does it matter who is doing the job? It needs to be done. Have you seen the stupid ppl on the roads that try to go around the barricades? It is for the protection of the workers and the ppl on the road. Depending on the job, the PO is pd by the company thru the PD. These jobs have nothing to do with the amt of cops on the rd each day. Its fine to ask a question but next time you may want to call the town for an answer before posting a quest in such a neg way.

The police officers on the construction sites are working on their days off. The insurance companies for the contractors require officers on most of these jobs. The town gets paid, who then pay the officers.
