February 2, 2014

GLOVERSVILLE — Fulton County law enforcement officials feel they can always use more manpower, but nevertheless have an adequate number of officers to patrol the area....

I for one am glad they are walking main st. The more visibility the better. My hope is that they are staffing toward the problem times rather than even staffing over the day. As far as the fire department is concerned it is a staffing issue. the fire department should staff for 7 but have minimum staffing of 5. In other words if only six are in the fire house then we are okay if 4 then we need to pay overtime. Just a thought that could save a lot of money.

From looking at the county numbers, seems Fulton might be a little light on officers compared to "similar sized" counties.

pbeck is right, the article was informative and it makes me ask questions -- like--

Why does "it get busier" after 9 PM when the population is less than it was in years gone by???? and overall why are there more police calls with a population of about 2/3 what it once was?????

It would seem that there are issues at hand that weren't there before, maybe a general lack of respect for our fellow human beings???

I guess the newbies like to see their name in print, whether it's a good comment or a joke. If people are wanting for things to do, I can suggest many. There are historical societies, food pantries, nursing homes, lake associations, clubs for kids, search societies, citizen bands, humane societies, human advocacy groups, mentoring groups, woman's groups, acting and culture groups and a myriad of other groups who need volunteers to help those in need, or to enhance our communities. In fact, Fulton County has many opportunities to get involved and make a difference, a positive difference. If one is so bored, that the only diversion is to make fun of this paper and the people in it, (for which I not always agree), then it is you who are sadly needy.

Its just that there isn't much to do here at the Home and if they took away the old computer in the rec room we'd have nothing else to do after counting the dust bunnies under the radiators.

Once again, I can't understand the comments made from informative stories. Do these really reflect all that you got out of? You did read it and not just look at the picture? A picture of a law enforcement officer who you would welcome if you or your family were in need of what he is hired to do. The story was informative - period.

But aren't most of the people they have to chase obese?

Policemen should be constantly be physically fit. The policeman in the photo looks overweight. This could effect his duties.

King just had to get one more dig at the Fire Fighters. Grow up, the FF had nothing to do with this article.

I actually saw a policeman walking on the main street in Gloversville last summer one day. Wish I had my camera. He seemed a little disoriented but I assume someone directed him back to the station house.
