Such disrespect for the folks who protect us. I don't see any of you commenters volunteering (or applying) for the job. When I've had need of police the response has been prompt, courteous, and effective. Keep your negative, hateful opinions to yourselves, troll to troll.
Unfortunately, the experiance of many has not been positive, and down right embarrassing at best.

I'm not sure where you walked a beat, but I'm pretty sure these guys are auxiliary and aren't even allowed to drive cars or answer calls. They're just there to give an appearance of police being out there. The best they are is people walking around looking for crime to call the regular officers.
Public law came out in 1998, all officers part-time and full-time MUST be certified and attend a police academy and pass the state test. Yes, they are the police. Those guys walking are probably part-time officers, which B.I. used to have working in high crime areas. The last 2 chiefs quit using them. If they are out walking again, that is their assignment. They also used to ride motorcycles and 4 wheelers too. Before chief Kosman came along, there were like 50 part-time officers and most walked the neighborhood year round.
