Yeah, police. I was complaining about that today because ConEd is installing a new transformer at a sub station here. Understandably they had to close the street where they are working and set up a detour which was clearly marked. They had a huge crane that you couldn't miss as well as barricades at each end of the work area.

So what I want to know is why they have to have a police car sitting at each end with lights flashing? Who requires it? It's a waste of police resources because they are useless and not needed. Besides that I abhor a police presence in places like this because it smacks of authoritarianism.
