Chesterfield County and the Richmond area took a survery several years ago to get input from citizens. Understand this is asking for your opinion and voice it. It is your right to do so. We like to keep people informed on this site and give them the right to express themselves when other options are either ignored or failed. We would like to incorporate the area that we are living in and are concerned about. Perhaps the local departments can learn something from it. I would hope for the better.

That is right my friend. I guess this should be edited for the answers. No confidence, somewhat or sometimes. Thanks for response.

How can it be edited to put in No confidence, very confident or somewhat confident? Or should a new poll be done to reflect that? Just curious, some agencies I have a lot of confidence in and others not that much.
so what now

i agree there are many good police officers with good intensions and there are others that have differnt ideas of how to read the constitution ,and just what it stands for! so how can one have confidence in the system when when we have lost respect for it ??

No confidence whatsoever. Even though I have not lived in that area for about 20 years, nothing has changed. The law will always be crooked in Nottoway unless someone from the outside comes in and clean it up! Especially with Mayo Gravatt!

The chances of that happening, are about the same as the world coming to an end, in 2012.But yes, he is the cancer of the legal system, in Nottoway county.With no cure in sight.

That is true because even if the officers do arrest someone it still has to go before the top cop and it is the court system that either lets the guilty go or excessively punish the innocent. Good cops get frustrated and sometimes over the bad ones in the bunch. So I would say about 50% percent of the time on other agencies.

Sooner or later things come to a head and the police do have depend on the citizens for help.

As far as I am concerned the sooner that Mayo is out of office and this county has to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars to Larry Stokes for wrongful conviction.

No confidence i can sit with my kids in my yard walk to get soda or ice cream go get gas go to the dollar store well go anywhere and do you see any Crewe cops NO only if you go to fast mart or crewe station. The damm cheif will not even get out of his car to let cars in and out of the street at crewe primery. And i have to ask where are all the cop cars going at night that $2.50 charge on the water bills is for gas.But where are they going I dont see them. I love it when you go to C-mart and there are ppl drinking and pissing out back and in the ally. My kids have seen it and this is the stuff that realy gets me going. And its all the same ppl day and night. WHY do they let this go on CAN SOME ONE FILL ME IN.

That does sound like a problem. I am kind of glad I don't get out there because it would be embarrassing to see somebody doing that in public.

Have you filed a complaint with the Cheif? There is an old drunk that drives a lawnmower up 460 and loud talks everywhere. According to people in Hardee's a cop came in, I don't know if they took away his riding tractor. Probably should.

I have and he will do nothing. He said no one from c-mart called and there is no complant. The only cop here in town that cares is Shreck and he is older and the kids just tell him to go away old man. The cops here in town are bad they do nothing for the town. If they do anything then that means they have to go to the court house.
And we all know Mayo Man is there telling the cops not to make his day long.

It is the court system that holds things up, we know that. It does not help when a CA picks and chooses his cases. For example ask any state employee about trying cases in the prison system. But look at this way guys he can not stay on there forever. Yeah Shreck did tell the old guy that was drunk to stay at home. One of these days that old man is going to get killed though.

We hear you and it is sad to know because too many times the elected officials fail to recognize that they are at the mercy of its citizens and those citizens want action to be taken.
