i've been in lawenforcement for 27 years and its always the same, when mony gets tight the first to go is the ones who protect the community. times have changed and the citizens better realize it, your afety, the safety of your children and your property are at stake when you cut back your police force. I am a Deputy sheriff in a north alabama county, I worked a short time as a police officer in elberta and found the whole department to be very professional, they care very much for the community and its people, if it had not have been for some health problems I would have loved to have stayed in elberta, I met noone who made me feel like a outsider, if the city of elberta can find a way you need to keep what protection you have, times will get better!!!!!! you have a great town, keep it that way. Help keep drugs away from your community, a good police department is the only way to do that, and you have a good department, believe me, I know.

one of the problems with the Town of Elberta is the pay of officers. Elberta simply cannot keep up with Foley, Gulf Shores, Orange Beach, or BCSO, and that is really beyond their control. Elberta is also still a town where you can pretty much leave your car doors unlocked and leave your house unlocked at night, so that adds to the idea that a reduction might not hurt too bad. more than likely, Elberta will go back to a "paid on-call" type system, which is how it was before there was 24 hour coverage.
