Congrats Officer Davis, but most of all congrats Dave. Our community is so blessed to have Det. Talbert on OUR side. He truly cares about the people he serves. He is excellent at what he does. I know his family personally, and he has been very overwhelmed with events in his family, as well as at work,and you wouldn't even know it. He's a good man. Thanks Chief Panezott and the Salem Pd. Stay safe

I'm proud to call Salem home. The world is changing and so is Salem. I'm sure the detectives and Salem Pd will continue to do a great job. God bless

Well, unfortunately, spending money to start paying for sitting board members on a commission and a downtown makeup job just seems to override the logic of your statement oakleaves.

But hey, maybe we can get our City Council members to "to start a 5 year committee" on this!

Just out of curiosity what is the budget for the P.D.?

Good point watchdog. Why is this obvious manpower shortage falling on death ears?

Good point watchdog. Why is this obvious manpower shortage falling on death ears? Patti part of it is it is also falling on empty pocketbooks. The whole city needs to prioritize and streamline the way government services are administered. We have too many chiefs and not enough Indians. We have too many people on the payroll that are not really adding value to meeting the needs of the community. Basically the cost of administering our services has out grown our pocketbooks.

I think the new police chief is doing a stand up job. I hope his views for future change pan out as planned. I support him, and i think that he needs all the resources he can get if the city will allow it.

I wonder what impact that the city population has dropped over 2000 # since 1970

The avg income is $33930 /family compared to $50103 nation wide.

21 % live in poverty ,while over 50 % receive some type of asst.

The cost of resurfacing a street is out of this world is why every one batches

Other costs have increased while incomes and revenues have stagnated.
