The police department, headed by Chief Heath Boyer, now provides around-the-clock protection in the borough every day of the year. Speakers told the Kane Borough Council Monday that the borough could save money by cutting on-duty coverage. Instead of providing 24/7 coverage by an on-duty police officer, the borough could assign policemen to "on-call" status. During "on-call" duty, designated police officers would respond from home only when needed. "A lot of people feel we don't need police 24/7," Jean Swanson of Kearney Street said. "Why can't they go on calls from home? They're never there when you need them anyway."

As district attorney, McMahon sees individuals battling various addictions pass through the criminal justice system on a regular basis. "With respect to addiction, we always need to remember that addiction oftentimes involves controlled substances, but that it includes prescription drugs, it includes alcohol, and it includes other matters. An addiction is something where it's taken complete control of your life and you have no control over it and you feel helpless," McMahon said.
