HOWEVER, it turns out that the Atherton police department officers could not empty the collection containers without getting stuck by discarded needles so Atherton discontinued this important service. Why are Atherton police officers uniquely incapable of doing something that every other police officer in the county seems to have mastered?

Great question Peter, they are one of the only Police Departments that tell their employers/residents who they better vote 4, both by phone and new political signs.

Maybe because the APD does not have the proper funding for providing the law enforcement Atherton needs.


Maybe because the APD has been too busy being pumeled by the attacks of you , Mckeithen, Stogner?

More than 99% of residents think they're getting all the service they need.
