Macleod (2009) further states that without doubling or tripling the hiring rate of officers, the police will have to start cutting back some duties they currently perform. Normally 2000 new officers are hired across Canada every year; however by 2012 in order to replace the baby boomers, 5000-6000 will need to be hired. This might be more difficult than it sounds, considering most youth do not seem that interested in policing according to a recent survey of 1521 youths aged 16-27, that found only four percent would think about becoming officers (Macleod, 2009).

Another reason is that it will be very hard for you to see walking around. Suppose if a car doesn’t have its lights on and you walk across the street while the car is coming and your life could be taking away that quickly due no streetlights being functional which could have been avoided if the streetlight were functional in the first place . The Police in Detroit are yet another problem going downhill. The size of the police team in Detroit has been cut by about 40 percent in the last decade. In 2012 the emergency manager reported that the police department had about 2,030 employees.
Today, the United States faces budget problems at local, state, and national levels. Soon, Congress will vote whether or not to raise the national debt ceiling, hoping to avoid defaults on loans and causing further harm to a slumping economy. While federal budget cuts will have to be made should the ceiling be lifted or not, cuts are also being felt on a local level, even in places like education. While not completely responsible for these problems, there are over 12 million illegal immigrants living in the United States. Unfortunately, about 59% of them do not have health insurance.

This deficit is increasing due to many factors. DPS’s operating costs are increasing, property tax revenues are going down, emergency managers are not able to handle the finances properly, and the management staff is not trying to reduce costs or cut salaries of DPS employees. However, one big reason the deficit is increasing is due to declining enrollment of students.

Ice Hockey in Canada Ice hockey has in the last hundred years evolved to become international. Canada is in jeopardy of losing its six teams. Tradition run deep in all of the cities and also professional hockey teams create thousands of jobs and help out in the communities. Teams in the Canadian market are having trouble keeping their programs in the black because of higher taxes and a weaker Canadian dollar.

Comparing the transit systems of specific metro regions in most if not all cases has similar characteristics across the country, financial issues. Transit systems from the largest in the country such as the New York City Metro Transit Authority and Washington D.C. Metropolitan Area Transit Authority with a combined 9.3 million daily ridership to the smallest such as the Rochester-Genesee Regional Transit Authority of Rochester, New York struggle with financial issues (Transit for Livable Communities, 2009). These financial issues hinder the transit systems and daily riders from cuts and delays in service due to lack of employee personal to increases in fares. In the comparison of the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority of Cleveland, Ohio and Metro Transit of the Metropolitan Council in Minneapolis, Minnesota, both transit systems are in debt and struggling with ideas to shorten the debt ceiling but Cleveland and Minneapolis have different views on funding and how they plan to close their debt. In what ways can the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority and the Metro Authority of Minneapolis continue to rebuild and maintain each individual transit system while staying in the means of the budget, and reducing the amount of debt each system is currently in?
