OK, now the county has money to give pay raises to our law enforcement folks! I have friends in the Arizona troopers, sheriff departments and local police who have had minimum pay raises in the past 10 years. This has created high turnover rates and additional cost to trained new recruits.
With the economy improving under the best President in the last 50 years, we are going to see more trained law enforcement folks leaving for the private sector.
We cannot afford this drain of qualified law enforcement!
