But local police officials, including Lancaster city police Chief Jarrad P. Berkihiser, claim that a loss of funding will only hurt their ability to preserve community safety, possibly meaning that some criminal investigations will have to be ignored.
“What I can tell you is any reduction in the police operating budget will be a loss in service,” Berkihiser said.

Three people have been shot in Lancaster city in the last month. No arrests have been made. Despite the safety coalition cameras, no further information has been released to the public. The Lancaster Police don’t solve crimes and no one holds them accountable. Three people were shot! Where’s that “community safety,” Berkihiser?
