Not realy have you looked at the population of the county? Did you also know that that the officers in this county have not received a raise in five years, now I am not talking about a raise for bump in pay it’s a cost of living raise. The budget in this county has cut cars each year most of the cars your see are not new. Seeing that ford stopped production on the police cruiser that everyone sees the crown victoria. I think this stopped two years ago in production. For the most part the new toys so to say are either bought by a grant that the agency has applied for. Most of the budget goes toward building cost and up keep. The budget is put in with a lot of things in placed to upgrade equipment or to counter the cost of living. The budget each year is cut in half by the board of commissioners, who mind you still get the cost of living raise and then some. I also beleive that there are some departments in the county that use to cut back on somethings. Now this county has come through a terrible time and has oppurtunity to build toward econimical standard.
