Looks like the hotel was in the middle of some construction...a TripAdvisor review from January 1st indicated the hallway ceiling tiles were removed and some sheetrock. From the photos, it looks like they were trying to track down a water leak.

I firmly believe when the policy is written, it should require the municipal court prosecutor or the district attorney to criminally charge any person who falsely accuses a police officer of misconduct when the video evidence or otherwise proves differently. Hold everyone accountable for their actions!!

Thank you for your service Mike...One of the most open minded, sincere commissioners I have seen in my thirty years of being a Lawrence resident.

I think we all know what club they’re referring to the 700 block Massachusetts

Dorothy, you hire both because it’s obvious the police department will be short handed due to the impending retirements. The point is no one should be given any preference based on race, age, gender, or their faith.

If you hire someone based on race, gender, or age...Is that not being discriminatory and open the department up to litigation? What happened to hiring the most qualified candidate regardless of the protected class? I don’t want a old man, African American, female, or white male showing up to help me at a time in need just because he/she fits the “mold” of what a department should look like.

Bob, If I remember correctly, the city did plan for this when the police department asked for new police building. There was talk at that time of building a judicial complex which would house a new municipal court building along with the police department but the voters did not support the police department and a new building.
Now that the city is moving forward on a new police department, it should plan on remodeling efforts to move the current municipal court into the judicial building once the police department moves out.

If we are talking police resources specifically for the downtown area, I would support a small tax increase from a downtown benefit district, an increase in parking fines, or an increase in the alcohol tax fund. The city should also charge these bars for any venue they bring to downtown to offset any public safety cost. I’m not sure what a police officer earns but figure five officers earning $75k in salary/benefits so for $425k and you could have a permanent downtown patrol district paid for by the users.
