Good news – your town may get an extra police man (or two) for 3 whole years! Biden announced today the cities that will receive a piece of the $1 billion award to law enforcement agencies to hire police officers – with money coming from the Stimulus bill. The positions are 3 year jobs – (can you get vested in a retirement plan in three years?)- and cities like New York City didn’t receive anything – when Anchorage, Alaska got 9! My city, sadly, won’t benefit from one extra policeman for three years. The story is here.
So in three years, after ONE BILLION DOLLARS is spent with money we don’t have…then what do we do?
