Re: Police - items needed for their sleeping accomodations

The expat community here often demonstrates its ability to raise funds for good causes. Given to low taxes we pay to live here, lack of services notwithstanding, we can all afford to fork out the cost of a dinner out to help ensure a police presence in town. Do the math - 200 pesos times 200-300 contributors makes 40000-60000 pesos, likely enough to rent a downtown apartment.

Make it fun - hold a "police benefit" at the casino, sponsored by the delegado, ejido, local merchants or whomever (be nice to see the locals take the lead). Putting pesos in a collection can is okay, but it would be nice to raise the profile on the need for safety and security, while also developing trust and communication between police and community.
