Yes it is actually necissary to hire someone to do that. The reason being, these fine upstanding drug addicts, I'm sure, have been arrested before and are familiar with the regular officers and detectives, so there for they wouldn't be "undercover". Another reason being, you need someone dedicated to particular investigation. You can't take away from the regular staff or else people will get mad because their cases aren't getting worked. With that being said, just be glad that they are getting drugs off the street and out of our kids hands. No, they will never stop the drug problem, but they can make it as difficult as possible for them. Who cares how much money they paid them. I would rather know that my tax dollars are being put to good use. Don't forget, officers, cheifs and any other town official are tax payers also. They are not exempt from that. I guess it doesn't really matter though cause officers will always be "damned if they do and damned if they don't".
