Happy Thomas Jefferson Day!

Hope you all had a good one! If you worked for the Malverne, NY police department and you had a shift today, you’d get comp time for it. It’s less certain if that perk will still be there next Thomas Jefferson Day. Or any of the the holidays honoring Rosa Parks, Harriet Tubman or Gerald Ford. Even National Parents Day is in doubt, for Gawd’s sake! Altogether, along with more traditional holidays, the Malverne Police get 35 holidays. Well, it’s rough policing a one square mile village in the middle of a county that has a large police department of its own. Now there’s a labor dispute about it. Go figure!

    You’ve been posting up a storm. I love it. I give a lot of credit to those men in blue who protect us.

  2. Absolutely, and if they can get away with this, more power to them. Of course, I don’t live in Malverne.
