We never see police cars on our street. Supposedly the police drive on every street in town twice a day. I don't think that is a fact although was told it was by a council member. Wouldn't you think they would go past once in the daytime and once through the night? We aren't up at night to know if they go past or not however we are retired and would notice a police car in the daytime. In fact, we look for them and haven't viewed one in this area in over a week or more.

So are you saying that staffing levels matter? The governing bodies would argue with you there.
