The practice of man per car for public safety needs to be looked at for city,county and state agencies. You have to have 3 vehicles for a 24 hour shift along with the related expenses that generates. Also the officers are being susidized by providing them a vehicle for personal use at a miniscule monthly fee that includes fuel and the cost of insurance. The rationale that having the officers drive the vehicles home creates a deterant to crime in neighborhoods is not well founded and does this ofset the cost of the extra vehicles.

  1. Oh it goes further than that. What about all those unmarked cars driving home. They are not a deterrent to crime. And then when they are home they get to drive them to the second job and on vacation as long as they stay in the state. Why should we pay for them to use it to go shopping or working another job or drive the family to moab for vacation?
