As more departments are tight on cash.
I am sure you have all thought of ideas to get the dept. more money to buy equipment, and pay for extra guys to be hired.

Well here in Washington State, when a cop catches someone tossing a cigar or anything lit its a $500 dollar fine, but where does that money go?

I am all for raising that ammount of money too $1500 each time and then that will teach people not to litter and in turn for those who feel they need too, they will be paying the big dollars.
With that money that the ticket is from $500 goes to the cops (they write the ticket) and the rest goes too the fire department.
I am also in favor of having the BC or maybe shift captain being able to write a ticket as well.

what are some of your thoughts on this idea?
