I for one feel very safe that LMPD is guarding the parking lot at the Wynnewood train station, the parking lot behind the Staples in Narberth, the parking lot of the Gateway School in Penn Valley and the Main Line News Bldg on Lancaster Ave in Wynnewood........to name just a few of the parking lots currently under guard. These must be very valuable parking lots because hour after hour, night after night you can see an LMPD "patrol" car there idling. This being the case may I suggest we change the name of the vehicle from patrol car to "idle" car.
