Four years ago, when several Nassau police precincts were combined as part of a larger effort to save $20 million annually, the 6th Precinct was merged into the 3rd. Advocates to reopen the 6th Precinct believe that, since the merger, there have not been any savings and the community has not been as safe. Acting Nassau Police Chief Thomas Krumpter purports there have been savings and crime is down. Should Nassau County reopen the 6th Precinct?

Wider exposure to attract possible bidders on county contracts will result in cost-effective pricing and taxpayer savings. Currently Nassau only advertises available contracts by placing legal ads in Newsday and on the county website.
