Our View: Thumbs up

Thumbs up: In both the public and private sectors, employees have been forced in recent years to stretch themselves thin in a difficult economy.

Oftentimes it becomes clear that doing more with less is easier said than done, and creative solutions are required to avert major problems.

That is why we are heartened to see the village of North Aurora take steps toward creating a volunteer force that can assist the village’s police department in the case of emergencies or manpower shortages at special events, such as North Aurora Days.

The program would be a local offshoot of the national Citizen Corps volunteer group, which is overseen by the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

North Aurora Deputy Police Chief Scott Buziecki is optimistic there will be substantial interest in volunteering once the program launches.

That would be a welcome development. The volunteer force looks like a terrific opportunity for civic-minded North Aurora residents to make a real difference in their community.
