Oh, well that fact that rural pa has outsourced policing to the state police, and thus their costs, is also a big problem

County wide police force that is funded by those counties and either a severe reduction/no reliance on state police to provide routine local coverage.

That’s what they were supposed to do here a few years back. I don’t follow local news all that well but they ended up just making a drug task force. Seems like too many egos got in the way.

PA is a backwards ass state in that regard. PA residents complain about high property taxes yet refuse to merge their small dinky municipalities together to consolidate them and run them more efficiently.
