A perfect example of why we need our own police department and cannot short sightedly look at costs. I'm sure these homeowners were reassured by the fact that Atherton has its own police force who was able to keep them safe.

"(a)ble to keep them safe?"
These residents were the victims of an armed robber in their own home!!!
The goal of successful policing is PREVENTION not INTERRUPTION.

this is not a reason for your own police department. with as little as APD has to do there shouldn't be any of these types of crimes in your town. Lets see who actually investigates this crime - can you say San Mateo County Sheriff's Department?
