I have been on the political/town council side of this issue and if it's the same, it's simply support for the patrolman's union in Boston/Mass.. The union wants no competition from private groups and wants a monopoly for itself in the Boston law enforcement business period. Same for the other governmental worker groups. Local, County, State & Federal employees. Teachers, firemen, road departments etc..
