Atherton crime wave, where are the cops?

Original post made by What gives?, Atherton: other, on Dec 17, 2013

There seems to be an article every week (or more often) that burglaries are taking place in Atherton, in quite a rampant fashion. The burglars seem to be operating with impunity.

Where is the Atherton police in all of this? This is a small town. Can't they provide a meaningful deterrent to prowlers in the middle of the night?

This is after a rich contract was just awarded, again, making them the highest paid police officers in Northern California by salary (perhaps all of California). This is after the parcel tax was rammed down our throats, again.

Don't tell me we need to hire more cops and pay higher taxes. That's not a solution. May as well move to the sheriff in that case.

Well, APD, is crime up, or down?

Surely you can look it up...

... in the newspapers that are always found in various donut shops...
