For this year’s St. Patrick’s Day parade, the city of Pittsburgh will be paying police officers to patrol Market Square. In years past merchants in Market Square paid for off-duty officers to ensure the safety of revelers. Fraternal Order of Police head Mike LaPorte is questioning this policy, saying taxpayer dollars should not be used to pay for a private event.
