a police chief was quoted on the investigative CALEA He said”they couldn’t find a collar in a shirt factory.”

It would be nice when these releases are sent out right before the election if the city could lets us know how much is this costing.

There are pros and cons to this and the city should of done more than rubber stamp it.
