      Bandera, TX

Our City Council, has come to a decision to get rid of our Police Department, and use their salary to build new roads, new sewer system, and get a new City Administrator. This will only cause more crimes and make our small country town not safe. We are a small town who knows everyone and everyone's dog. The Police Department doesn't just keep our town safe, they are family! Our Sheriff Department will be taking over, but they already take care of our County and to patrol the City limits, will be very difficult. How will they be able to help everyone... It won't happen. We need our Bandera Police Department.

      These people are from out of town or state, they don't know about the " Bandera Stompead " and the " free state of Bandera ".

      Because we need police officers in the city of Bandera and because of how DWI's sentencing are handled in Bandera. I know of a man who has has 5 DWI's and keeps getting a slap on the wrist. He was supposed to get mandatory prison when he was caught drinking with his own kids in the truck 4 years ago, but got no jail time.

      I work on many of the events we have, and having our police to be on the grounds, help keep the peace in order. With the police gone,this may allow the drug and drinking get out of hand,then what will we do? I hope there is some other way to save money for the city

      I care about my city and its residents. I care about OUR safety. Unlike other council members, I have needed the police department at times in my life and I value their place in our society.

      As a frequent tourist to the Bandera Hill Country, this disturbs me greatly. I have been in Bandera during some of the busiest events and would hate to think what COULD happen without having a police force at the ready. Please make a smart decision here.
