Your safety is your own responsibility

Raindogblue illustrates why the safety of you and your family is primarily your responsibility.

Due to budget cuts, the sheriff has eliminated all shifts, but one. Starting January 1st, the ten remaining road deputies with be working  3 PM to 3 AM, seven days a week. There will be no coverage in the county from 3 AM to 3 PM.

Police are dedicated, self-sacrificing individuals.  The good ones could be working a lot less for a lot more money if they chose to.  But they can't work for free, and they can't be everywhere at once.

It would  be interesting to find out what besides police coverage the county he's talking about cut to save money.  It would be fascinating to see what they chose to not cut in favor of the sheriff's budget.
