    Law enforcement departments across the nation are boosting their dependence on donations and unusual fundraising techniques as they continue to get hammered with budget cuts.

    “The environment calls for you to be crafty,” said Fred Wilson, director of operations for the Virginia-based National Sheriffs’ Association.

    Among the more creative fund-seeking law agencies is the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office.

    Sheriff Tom Allman sells advertising on his booking log website and is seeking tax-deductible donations through the click of the mouse.

    Many big-city law agencies are supported by private, non-profit foundations, but Wilson said he’s never heard of a sheriff’s department that solicits ads or direct contributions online.

    Most law agencies use foundations because raising money directly raises ethical questions and can create the perception that law enforcement can be bought. Laws governing donations varies from state to state, Wilson said

    And we can make our patrol cars look like they belong on a NASCAR track by selling ad space. Let's see, who all would be there? Attorneys, Bailbonds Men, a body shop or 2,

    I know the financial situation is tough all over. But this is another of those things that this hairy legged redneck thinks is just a bad idea.

    I'll be the half-wit here and suggest Dunkin Donuts and Krispy Kreme. And Starbucks.
