A City Hall council meeting that took place Friday the 12th of April saw the approval and passing of two proposals.
The first proposal put forward to the council and citizens by Chief Jade of the Santa Ramona Police Department was a scheme to introduce bounty hunters in a scheme to help Police bring vigilantes and criminals wanted by the law into custody.
Chief Jade spoke about the scheme;
"I'm looking forward to seeing if this bounty hunter group will help Santa Ramona deal with some of the issues we have with crime. If we don't see any advantages to it within a few months, then we can evaluate but I think the citizens deserve to see criminals brought to justice. Bounty Hunters will be in a better position to find the criminals where they are hiding and bring them to justice. Hopefully, this will give victims a greater sense of justice than we have now."
The Chief received a unanimous vote of approval and it appears the scheme was supported by the council members but reportedly the Mayor was not as enthusiastic initially.
