A Matter Of Opinion

Do we have enough cops or not?

The Matrix report says the city of Spokane could stand to lose 10 police officers. In 2005, voters approved a temporary property tax increase to, among other things, forestall layoffs at the Police Department. Meanwhile, Mayor Hession says he will let that tax lapse.

So, did we need to raise that tax to begin with? Or does the Matrix study accept a level of public safety that is unacceptable to the public?
