As people joke about things this is how bad its gotten. in past couple nights there was a minor wreck on Hwy 17 near Walmart.. One lane blocked ended up with 4 LPD officers on the scene 1 of which was actually doing his job it appears. Leland Fire had a FF directing traffic and the other 3 blind mice were standing around just talking to each other doing nothing.. (I noticed in my travels going north another officer had a traffic stop in progress) which means 5 of the officers in LPD were at the far end of the towns jurisdiction leaving maybe 1 officer available in case of an emergency in the rest of the town limits, not exactly safe. (Not knowing how many they have on a given shift I cant say for sure as Im sure it depends) but still seems to me that having nearly all the towns officers down in one area is a recipe for disaster and quick hitting criminals to take advantage of.. (BTW have they had any luck catching the bank robber of the CU down near Walmart?? you'd think with all the cops time spent down there they woulda caught him red-handed).
