We've been on vacation and it was a good time with family. Sorry for the lack of posts.
Anyway, we recently had an opportunity to review the activity generated on 2211's beat and we have been shocked and happily surprised. It has always been said on this blog that we want quality police service, not quantity. It looks as if with quality, we get some quantity. The arrest totals on the beat have gone up. And there have been some pretty good arrests. Don't know if this blog has had anything to do with stepped up patrols or aggressive policing, but it is a welcomed sight.
However, we still see quite regularly 2211 being dispatched east and also detailed. It is horrible that we have to watch our car go east for anything but assists for other officers, but it is still happening. There is a police shortage, but there is not a shortage of tax paying/voting residents in Mt. Greenwood. Remember these police shortages when you vote. KEEP 2211 WEST!!!
