When I visit my friend who lives in F.O.,I see a lot of police cars often with one or more cars pulled over. He and I went to a recent parade in the city and there must have been 15 or more police cars in the parade. That shocked me and I wondered how a small town like F.O.could afford so much enforcement. The county jail is hugh and the courts are filled with mostly the poor who I presume must foot the bill for all this enforcement. To answer your question; I would say yes, we are paying for more police oversight than we need just as we often pay for more doctoring than we need. What to do? That’s the problem,it’s nearly impossible to reduce any system that pulling in lots of money when jobs and income are at stake. But you raised agood point.
