    Show off.

    Yep, that’s pretty crazy. And I’m sure the university police, like here, make traffic stops on public roads.

    And what about the overhead? How many people filling the same position at different departments that could be consolidated? How much would that save us?

    Maybe a county sheriff with outposts all over the county? Maybe, just maybe, a very limited PD for city limits. All “tactical” stuff handled by SO.

    I’d love to take a stroll through the US would a few of the Founding Fathers. It would be enlightening and heartbreaking.

    This is exactly what caused the Floyd situation. The elected city officials all owe their positions to the campaign funding from the unions, including the Police union. Therefore, incompetants like the guy who kneeled on Floyd's neck, probably should have been canned years ago, but the union was successful in keeping him on the job despite all of the previous complaints and the lack of adequate investigations. I work with public agencies all over the country as a consultant and you cannot believe the low level of competence in most city and county government organizations/

    I can. Also, most municipalities classify public safety personnel as employees instead of municipal officers/officials so they can avoid the additional cost and liability burdens.

    Forgot about them.

    The University police doing traffic stops is one of the bigger things that irritates me.

    I can believe the low level of competence. In my life it seems that the C- and D+ students in high school are are the current crop of politicians. Not the best and brightest.
