      Rye, you are correct that a lot of police work is 'after the fact' but you didn't mention two very important things.

      The biggest deterrent to criminal activity is the certainty of getting caught. If crooks are aware that police in an area have a good network of information and are proactive and the likely hood that they will be caught is high then they are less likely to be active there. Prosecution also factors in here. They must know that if caught they will face effective prosecution.

      The second, an extensive information system is necessary. This means effectively working informants and having effective contacts with citizens who can provide information on actual or potential criminal activity.

      Technical proficiency is also important. This includes being able to recognize when to use technical services. In too many cases local LE is just lacking in these categories.

      This didn't happen to me but I am aware of one recent case of a burglary where the complainant told the investigating officer that they knew for a fact that the thieves had picked up an item and moved it and asked that it be printed. The officer looked at it and summarily dismissed it as 'probably couldn't get anything'. Not true. He had no way of knowing. The complainant also found out that several days had elapsed and the officer had not even filed a report.

      Incompetence like that should not be tolerated in a professional department.

      Cops do very little in the aspect of "protecting" us. They deal more with "after the fact". After you have been robbed. After you have been raped. After you have been shot or beaten, and so on............

      Law enforcement in this county has ALWAYS been of assistance to our families, our businesses, and our friends. Cannot imagine the ugly words being spoken against them. When have they been called and not assisted?

      LOL anti. Sorry to rock your little world. Truth must be hitting a little close to home for you.

      When they do right I pass out the kudos. But get your head out and take a look around and you can see that law enforcement management in this county is not providing the leadership necessary and is not worthy of their cost to the taxpayer.

      It's not the fault of the average patrol officer they are just taking their cue from the upper management.

      Hey shipchannelwhitetrashidiot, I think it's about time somebody told you to keep your smartmouthed, unwarranted comments to yourself and stay off this blog if you don't have anything else better to say about ALL law enforcement in general. Show some respect. These men and women make sacrifices and take far too much (they won't let me use the word) from people like you to do what they do on a daily basis to provide a SERVICE to protect you and your property. They deserve better than the trivial mockings you spew here on a regular basis. You're not funny. If you truly feel you are that mistreated and abused by local law enforcement, go back to Houston. I'm sure you'll get along fine down there with those that wear the blue or the tan. And no, I DO NOT work for local law enforcement. Just fed up with your comments.

      It's surprising they weren't all tied up out at the big raid on Baby Dolls.
