That idea of sending only one officer to certain calls and then two officers to other calls sounds great but as a police officer I'll tell you that sometimes its the ones that are low priorty that you think can be handled by one officer completely blow up and go bad. When your cutting officers on the road thats just asking for a officer to be killed. Its great that officer safety is no longer an issue.
