Where is the Chief during all this budget stuff? Seems like he should at least make an appearance, if not a presentation, himself. Clark was ill-prepared for the vehicle presentation and the personnel presentation. Ultimately, ... More ›

Mr Clark, I respect your job and the things you do, but you make a couple of contradictions during your presentation. You ask for more officers, yet the force has a LT on loan. You say you put together your presentation at ... More ›

How is Mr Clark handling his constable job now that he is handing double the work at FPD? Must have a lot of time on his hand to be able to do both. Just curious and no I don't want to see his logs, anyone can make up logs. ... More ›

Eric - they don't. LT works day shift, Sgts work night shift.

RU serious, they don't need a sergeant and an LT on duty at the same time, having almost as many supervisors as workers is ridiculous and counter productive.

You are right, Marcelina Muse. You say you need more officers, but one is on loan to some task force and you want 6 tahoes. Someone really thought about that one. What part of insolvent do they not understand?
