Another periodical put out the Atherton salaries today; the police officers salaries range from 112000 to 140000. Since Atherton is always complaining about budget problems why is it necessary to have their own force? Even Woodside uses San mateo county sheriffs. On Thanksgiving afternoon I noticed four different Atherton PD cruisers pointing out towards El Camino from their local streets. If they are looking for DUIS, the Sheriff or CHP could provide that service, San Carlos found having their own force too expensive.
Please give feedback on why Atherton needs this expense.
