Andrea no hard feelings here as we re all entitled to our opinion, but think about this. In 2002 Costco (may have just opened, not sure) or the Waterfront at Port Chester plus all the off shoot stores and restaurant cause of the Waterfront were not there and port Chester had about 62 police officers ( educated guess as the village doesn't put budgets back that far on the website, but I am being generous with my guess). Then the above mentioned places open with the influx of people that come with it, plus 342 westchester ave apartments, 410 westchester ave apts., the influx of overcrowding due to lax (again generous when I use lax) code enforcement, plus the other business and residential establishments I can't think of and now we have 58 police officers. I know I see a HUGE increase in the cars and people in port Chester. I respectfully disagree that port Chester has enough officers. To be continued...

Regarding the dunkin donuts comments, I am sure everyone is afforded the opportunity at their respected work places to a coffee break/meal break. You know what, I thank them for having it in the public, in the open as it shows a presence and security, remember if something happens, they are working and will respond. I rather have it that way then them sitting in a back room, like we do. That's why I will pay for a meal here and there for them when i see them sitting next to me when i am out with my spouse. Maybe I am a little bias as I have some good friends, no family though, as police officers and I know how hard they work and the long hours they work. I guess we agree to disagree, sorry

I appreciate the comments on this subject, but I think that this conversation was not directed by the classification of Port Chester .. I understand that Port Chester is a Villa, but not for being a Villa, we have endured many bars, pubs, delinquency growing insecurity in the streets. So I think we should go this September 27 at 7pm at 222 Grace Church-Senior Center to discuss the problem and seek solutions. I made this request which can be improved with input from all residents. "we are part of the problem but also part of the solution"

@ Juan 100% true we are part of the solution @ Robski48 I also have friends on the force 2 are like family 1 that i really care for so i just feel like nothing is being done and maybe we do need more officers maybe we don't i would say this i do feel for the ones that do double & have family that can't spend time with them. the one that have to step up to the plate is the mayor to clean ALL the over crowded apartments and the hanging out on Westchester Ave let's see whats the outcome
