At Deer Park Public hearing no decision on police dispatch by Pat following a Long often heated debate at a Public hearing july 25, Deer Park City Council deferred its decision on whether to join Hamilton county a dispatching system and disband its own full time dispatching staff. Council said it would delay the decision a at least until its next meeting aug 8. However the City must apply Early in August for Federal funds to buy new police equipment. Joining the county system would require a certain Type of radio so a decision will have to be made before then on what Type of equipment the City will ask for in its Grant request. Most of the approximately 8 1 people present opposed the switchover but Council did not indicate whether that opposition had swayed its determination to go with the county system. The Basic Issue was whether to continue the present system with a policeman occupying City Hall at All times or switch to the lower Cost county system and put All policemen on patrol. City Hall would then be occupied Only nine hours a Day by the safety director and Otner City employees. Some of the issues brought up at the hearing remain Cloudy because details have not been worked out and Council was unable to get a county communications expert to come and answer technical questions. Councilman Robert of Leary reported that the communications expert told him he a was no to paid enough to warrant his attending such chairman Harvey Alcorn said a meeting had been held earlier with members of the police and fire departments. While some firemen were against the idea the chief said he was a willing to give it a when pressed by members of the audience for his opinion. Police chief Nick Nimersheim said a a in a speaking As a lame Duck chief he retires sept. 7 and this will have effect Only after i leave. But As police chief i can. State unequivocally that the police department is totally against this. A we will save Money in buying equipment through Federal funds available if they link to the county and we will save Money anyway a Nimersheim continued a but you Are going to lose what we have worked to build up Over Many years a the close rapport Between the police and the chief Nimersheim acknowledge that the police Are operating with outdated and inadequate equipment but said the City was due to get an a automatic Send received machine which would enable police to get information of radio they cannot get now. Presently the department has a receive Only equipment. The new equipment would give the City Access to the same a instant crime information the county dispatcher would Supply. Nimersheim said the City has often been rejected when applying for such funds because it has Low priority. A cha Mil ion county has higher priority and gets everything it asks for a he noted. Arguments presented at the hearing included the following Points several women said they wanted a policeman at City Hall All the time so they could drive there if they were being followed especially at night. Others said it should be kept open so youngsters and other Community members could drop in and talk Over minor matters with the police. A fire department doors open electronically but in Case of Power failure a Man would have to climb a ladder and do it manually presumably this would be the dispatcher on duty. A one Man said he understood that the county dispatcher gave preference to county Calls during Busy periods. A a property owner said one of Deer Parks Selling Points was the local focus of its fire and police. The proposal did have proponents though. Clerk of court James Canning sneak As a. Citizen said the City could refuse to change and remain like a Mayberry l say but a those patrolmen will be walking their beats soon because the City wont he Able to afford can if it wants to spend Money this co that Uncil also pointed out a residents Are already sharing operational costs of the county Center through their taxes and reaping none of the benefits Federal and state funds will pay 95 percent of the Cost of changing equipment _ a the system costs less and increases Protection by putting More policemen on patrol a Calls would be. Logged automatically Quot instead of manually at the end of the month. A Deer Park would be eligible for Federal Money for fire dept equipment. Healy estimated the City would save $8,000 per year., the service fee of $3,100 is based on the number of Calls. Cycle is a real Winner.
