I'm not sure what you're saying here, once you hit a certain threshold you can convert your township to a city which gives the locals more power which usually benefits the local residents, on the other hand a city can impose local taxes so it's not so exciting,
by becoming a city it gives you more flexibility and more responsibilities as well
Lol. Lakewood can decide to become a city with 1 person, with 10,000 people or with 1 Million people .

There is no 'level' of 100,000 that changes anything. See here how Lakewood is the only large place still a Township, and many places smaller than 100,000 are cities.

Full story?
someone's CO detector went off 6am, LFD showed up, the resident came out and spotted those that were on camera stealing a week before, they asked LFD to call police, they were not interested

same neighborhood had robberies again on YT

sheriff put a camera tower on e 7th probably useless as the have footage of the incidents themselves and they don't lead to action this is going on for over 2 years, Shabbos and YT breakings

What's LCSW worth if they can't stop thieves from stealing high-end cars with the keys left inside? Shouldn't they catch the thief within the 4 seconds it takes to open the door and drive away?
What are we paying them for???

I'll let you know when the competition opens, when there's no competition it's all good since it's voluntary once you start shmira you'll hear all bedtime stories why we need to use them

Smashed windows is not keys in car, and they are very comfortable with what they are doing

So your issue is with a specific incident where they actually successfully helped recover the vehicle.
Someone sounds bitter to me but then again I didn't either have a coffee yet :)

What do any of these organizations owe you? Do you pay for their services?

Also, the physical footprint of the Lakewood community needed to patrol is exponentially bigger than it was 3 years ago.

The only policing work they do is to ensure roads are closed for development. ;)

Yeah, my bad I missed that part. But why mention them in the same breath as the other organizations? The other originations don't owe anyone anything, from what I understand.
