I'd sure hate to think the taxpayers have been footing the bill all these years and these 2 departments have not been cooperating with each other, sounds childish and political to me. And why when every corner has 6 police cars making 1 traffic stop for speeding does this area need to hire more officers? Are the officers that are already on the payroll not qualified to handle the job? You put all of NC officers out in full marked cars and full uniforms, not military gear, and the public will take notice, you put 80 % of your force on the streets between 10pm and 6am and you keep them "in" the trouble area's, not parked at the overnite diner, and you will see a difference. When the man or woman getting paid to protect the public are afraid to go out and walk the streets alone at night, what is the public to expect?
