I agree with your comment. I called to complain to the Sheriff’s dept about the traffic officer they sent to my child’s school on Monday. He was sitting in his car. He was NOT directing traffic. It was raining. So what!!! They are issued rain gear. What is the point of sending an officer out to direct traffic in a school zone if all he does is sit in the car? Did anyone take my call or complaint serious? No. The Sheriff’s office said call a different number. I did. That lady just automatically sent to someone else’s voicemail. She didn’t say hold on, one moment please, or let me get someone to help you. I thought she hung up on me until the voicemail box started talking.
At my child’s school, we are lucky if we get a traffic officer 2 out of the 5 school days. But yesterday it was raining, and it was during dismissal. I was extremely irate. And then for me to get treated so rudely by the Sheriff’s dept only made me even more upset.
I think we have too much local police, with an awful work ethic, and a downright disregard to the public and for what they call their duty.
