I haven't observed an officer walking since I was a teenager. I'm not kidding. I didn't know that they taught walking a beat in the academy. Around my area you will not see an officer of any description in an upright position unless he is walking fom his vehicle to another vehicle.
I truly believe that if traffic enforcement was a low priority and actually having an officer where crime is being committed, it would be a good use of the tax dollar. When citizens are afraid to walk the streets, anytime of the day or night, the cops need to be on the streets. Park the cars and walk. Some of the officers could use the exercise. The city can make the necessary changes to keep the streets safe but the officers are going to have to wear out some shoe leather instead of vehicles.
One of my favorite mottos is: Ain't nothing good gonna happen after midnight.
