I live in an area cover by Hemet PD, my house was being broken into and I was literally hiding in my bedroom closet on the phone with them. They finally arrived 22 minuets later. They stated it was not a "priority call", if that is not a priority call, then what is? when they arrived the person had left because my alarm startled them. They would not take finger prints of the full hand prints on the back window either. Then a week later they had the audacity to send me a False alarm ticket for the alarm going off. I called them on this and they did say it was a mistake. This is absolutely the reason why sheriff should take over the city. The regular department lacks the man power and funds to do their job correctly. No one in the city wants to have higher taxes so the department can actually have the funds needed. So until we take responsibility and decide maybe public safety is more important than say keeping the library open, then sheriff is the best bet.
You were on the phone with them, they knew it was a burglary in-progress and then you were told it wasn't a "priority" call?

Please provide the date and time of this incident. If you refuse to, I will call your story total B.S.

I love all our cops! They do the best that they can! They all work really hard. Look what they have to deal with. Especially this last five years. We can't control everything that happens. People ask for too much?! If we did have the budget, a few more cops on the street would help. And or maybe letting RSO come in and help when they can.

I agree. Our police work their friggin butts off. Sheriff's are lazier by far. Trust me, the police do not take 20 minutes to arrive at the break in, especially if your in the house, geeezzz.....

From what I have heard, HPD has hired 4 more officers. We need MORE, but at least it is a step in the right direction. RSO does help out "when they can", but more HPD boots on the ground is always a good thing!

RSO is stretched pretty thin, as HPD is, but our own local cops are the way to go. They know the area, know the "prime suspects", and are part of the community of Hemet. Therefore, HPD cares more. There is nothing better than a cop who lives in your neighborhood. Your concerns are also HIS/HER concerns.

Trust me, I live in the County, and PD services from RSO are pathetic, at best.

What does one cop cost the taxpayer a year? Probally about $ 400,000 ? Salary, benefits, car, equipment, other percs ?

The City of Hemet should not outsource their police department as long as there are plenty of people in the area that are capable.

Have a nice day with Jesus.
Jesus loves you I love you also.

We had the same kind of problem. We actually had video of the crime and a possible suspect name. We were told a year later, that there were no workable leads to follow up on. crime was never investigated, Case dropped!

In a recent call, HPD responded to 2 men with rifles on a hill near a school. The 3 nearest schools were immediately locked down, and HPD responded with 9 cops, all they had. Requests for help from RSO were turned down, RSO was apparently too busy. CHP chopper showed up to help. HPD searched the hill, NOT in their patrol cars with A/C on, but on foot. "Boots on the ground". The possible suspects were nowhere to be found, but some fresh tire tracks were found on the hill. No, this is not like the crime dramas on TV, where you take an imprint of the tire tracks, and eventaully find the "bad guys". This is REALITY, and HPD was on scene, IN FORCE, with everything they had available at the time. RSO was nowhere to be found.....thanks to CHP for helping out with a chopper.

Most likely "nothing", just a couple of dudes hunting rabbits. But, HPD was there, CHP was there, NO RSO.

You sure do have a lot to say, but I don't see you changing anything, whether it's a rough day or not, it takes more than the average person has to walk into a field (or desert in my case) knowing the armed person you are going after has the drop on you and could be lying in wait to kill you. But most people would rather be the media, not in the action because they can't handle it and monday morning quarterbacking everything like they have the answers when the real answer is most people run from gunfire, uniformed personel run to it to keep our land free and safe from those that try to terrorize us. I'm sure the MEDIA also belittled the same uniformed personel days before those same heroes ran towards the danger in the twin towers on 9/11 sacrificing their lives for the better good.

Nice spin Marine. Too bad your comments are fact less.
Bottom line the whole police force was chasing their shadows in the hills.
Certainly glade the sheriff saw through the hoax.
Sometimes charging the hill without thinking is not the answer.
You should have been trained better than that, I know I was.

Yeah, right Arnold. And exactly what unit did you "serve" in? What m.o.s.? What were you, a spoon? S-4, a pogue in the rear? Seems I would much rather go through a door or roll into a burg behind USMC than you.

Ugly fact is, people like you are why people like me will no longer defend to the death your right to free speech.

Be glad USMC still does.

If it were up to me, when you are lying on the street corner beaten to death by a gang of useless scum, it won't be my hand dialing 911 for your benefit. I'll just watch you bleed out. And tell you to call RSO.

It's not the fault of the police we have so much crime in the Hemet locale. You can thank organizations like the ACLU, pandering politicians who will say and promise anything to nonwhites to get their votes. What you wind up with in Hemet is a new Detroit. Don't believe me? Google typical homes in the Detroit area and compare them to similar looking edifices located within walking distance of city Hall. This was a sight you would never have seen not too long ago. I was persuaded by Coldwell Banker to plunk down my hard earned dollars on a Hemet home in the 90's when told there were more banks doing business here than in Switzerland. Everything was pristine, clean and high class. Then we got a new group of ACLU worshipping politicians and the rest is history. Thx to the political new reality evidenced by the Democratic giveway party, you have no jobs, no lovely neighborhoods, no decent people, and NO hope for the future.

<quoted text> That doesn't make any sense Hemet only had 40 cops anyways and Hemet Crime rates are very high and we spend we too much and I use to live in Valle Vista and the RSO did a great job. So we could get more cops for every buck. Also no life is not always about money but if Hemet goes bankrupt because we can no longer afford our police then we have to outsource anyways might as well do it now and build some excess funds. You sound like your a HPD officer afraid you can't pass the fitness test like San Jacinto cops like half of there police force couldnt even join the sheriffs because they couldnt pass the fitness test. They are efficent and they save money and they do a good job in Temcula, San Jacinto, and Valle Vista they can do a good job in Hemet too.
you sound like an RSO groupie or cheerleader....jeez. and as for your physical fitness statement if you knew anything you would know they are the same, and most HPD officers went through san bernardinos academy which is harder than RSO's. numbnutt
