I work full time for a county agency, but part time in a village, population 1500. I love it!For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.

Hello and welcome to LEF!
A smile cost nothing, but gives so much.
It enriches those who receive it,without making poorer those who give.It takes but a moment, but the memoryof it sometimes lasts forever.
None is so rich or mighty that hecan get along without it,and none is so poor but thathe can be made rich by it.
A smile creates happiness in the home,fosters goodwill in business,and is the countersign of friendship.
It brings rest to the weary,cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad,and it is nature's best antidote for trouble.
Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed,or stolen, for it is something that is of novalue to anyone until it is given away.
Some people are too tired to give you a smile.Give them one of yours, as none needs a smileso much as he who has no more to give.

Welcome to LEF! Enjoy the funIt is better to be tried by 12, than carried by 6.

I just went to a village board meeting last night because a couple of farmers on the board wanted to abolish the Village P.D. and depend on the county to provide law enforcement services. About 200 people showed up and the police department received unanimous support! It's great to work in a community where you are not only valued, but respected as well. There were even a couple of local "problems" there, and they voted to keep us!For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.

Ut oh... brass is here
Just kidding, welcome to LEF Chief.In law enforcement, the customer is ALWAYS wrong.
In God we trust. Everyone else is run through NCIC.
Sometimes there is justice. Sometimes there is just us.
I'd rather be tried by 12 then carried by 6.

"...depend on the county to provide law enforcement services. ..."
Funny you should bring that up. A similar situation here is how I ended up with this job. I'll send you a PM with the details, I don't want to get too much off topic.
