This is regarding your Q-Line question about police officer salaries (“How much is too much?” The Q-Line, Dec. 7-8).
Ten of your respondents indicated that $200,000 a year for 28 of the Santa Monica Police officers was too much. I think not.
My business is in Venice, Calif. Whenever I cross over the city limits into Santa Monica, I feel safer. Those 28 officers are protecting our most valuable assets.
