Can We Get a Posting of Rules for Neighborhood Park?

A posted warning would go a long way, especially since the police can't arrive in a timely enough way to confront the violators. So, let's work on prevention. It's worth a pound of cure.

Police in Palo Alto arrive within 10 mins of calling them even to something as minor as this. Call them, just don't use 911.

Guess what? In the above-mentioned case of public drinking and child endangerment, four cell phone calls were placed to the police non-emergency number, all between 4:55 and 5:15 pm. Some callers waited until 6:00 pm for the police to show, as people were still drinking and toddlers drinking the adults' dregs. One person stayed long enough to report that one officer finally showed up around 7:00, after the offenders and their small children had all left! That is two hours! That is unacceptable. Also unacceptable is the fact that there is nothing in the police log about it.

Jan H. wants to be the PA version of Carrie Nations.
It is total abuse of PAPD resources to call 911 about such a trivial matter--PAPD has much more important matters to deal with-which they do
Hysteria seems to be the problem with Jan H.
