what a busy week!
you would think that with all those arrests, and attempted arrests that those people would stop doing crime, or at least send a message to others thinking about it to not do crimes.
I would hope that when the city emerges from this tough time and on a strong upswing that crime rates will drop due to increased employment of people that are in critical situations and a better budget to add additional patrols for the city.
what you shoud understand is that on a per 1000 people basis, we have 25% of the officers that detroit has *and* our crime rate per 1000 people is about half of detroit’s. that means each of our officers is effectively doing the job of 8 detroit officers. remember that when you are looking to cut officers from the payroll and when you see an officer, tell them “good day” for me. 🙂
