Do you think policing your own neighborhood is a good idea?

The Council will debate, and then vote on an ordinance that would require new hires to BRPD to live within the parish after Jan. 1, 2017.  Do you believe that this will, if passed, improve policing in the city? Or, is this a real “cut ’em some slack” idea?  Me, I wouldn’t want to have to answer a noise complaint, or a domestic battery complaint, or even write a ticket to one of my neighbors.  I just don’t see this as a best practices idea.  How about you?
