After more than a month of debate, the City Council tonight is expected to decide how to spend $108,405 in state crime-fighting funds. In September, the Citizens Option for Public Safety program, which is known as COPS, allocated $100 million in state funds to cities based on population. San Clemente's share could be used to improve traffic enforcement, buy a trailer-mounted radar to monitor car speeds, or improve the Police Department's investigative unit.

Emotions ran high and debate raged when officers slowly lowered the San Clemente Police Department's blue and white flag for the last time in July. But in the six months since the city disbanded the 65-year-old department and merged with the Orange County Sheriff's Department--a move forced by budget problems--the city, and even some once-vocal critics of the change, have generally come to embrace the new arrangement.

The most obvious changes are the uniforms and the police cruisers. The uniforms are now olive green instead of dark blue. The blue-and-white cars are being replaced by black-and-whites.

A group calling itself Citizens for a Better San Clemente gave formal notice Tuesday that it will seek a ballot initiative to stop the city from closing the Police Department and contracting for police services with the Sheriff's Department. "If this passes, the people win back their right to vote," said group member Barry Vick, making a pointed reference to the City Council's unilateral decision last month to contract with the Sheriff's Department.
