Hoboken Cops and Fender Benders
Do you prefer “Protect and Serve” – or “paper pushers?”
Hoboken Policemen and Policewoman are employed by taxpayers to maintain order and safety in the Mile Square. They put their lives on the line, deal with unruly citizens, and more – to protect the law-abiding folks and make 07030 the greatest zip code in New Jersey.
But like chasing double-parkers – are there any other unnecessary tasks that can be given up to help them keep our streets free of crimes?
It seems like Philadelphia thinks so – and today have enacted a policy that relinquishes the need for officers to respond to time-wasting minor fender-benders in the city of brotherly love. Instead, those involved in the minor accident just have to fill out forms at Police Headquarters. “We can save police response time and have officers available for more important, pressing issues.”
Do you think this idea would succeed in Hoboken?
