I wonder if the police pull people over frequently in all communities or especially some. I am in waterleaf housing community frequently and I always see people pulled over. Is this a common thing in every neighborhood or more some that others?.... Pretty quiet community, little odd to see speed traps there.... and dont get me wrong I appreciate the police and all they do!! Wouldnt want their job.. and I realize... if a person is speeding then they are in the wrong (odd, its almost always the same cop and i was follow all through the community twice, though I was never speeding..?) Just curious?

In Amberwood I've seen next to no pull overs or police presence here in the 2 1/2 yrs I've been here.

Wondering--What time of day do you see the pullovers? I'm wondering if it's early in the morning or after school while school buses are picking up kids.

The police generally respond to traffic complaints from citizens in specific neighborhoods. If you watch, after a short period of time of monitoring the traffic, they move on. With a small staff of officers, the police department there doesn't have time to designate officers for extended periods of time. The majority of traffic violation complaints come from Subdivision authorities and the officers respond and cite observed violators of traffic laws.

Speed traps ... a definate lack of knowledge in today's law enforcement practices and procedures. With a staff of three officers per shift, I'm sure along with the call for service volumn and other assigned duties, the officers don't have time to set those mystic and pesky "speed traps." (See Podunk small town USA for real spped traps) The only one's that complain about them are those that are generally cited by the officers.

A suggestion would be to speak with the Kyle Chief of Police about "riding along" with the officers to see what they do during a shift.

I have seen officers pull over cars in all subdivisions in Kyle. If truly interested in public safety, go visit your local police department and speak with them in regards to your concerns. You can also go to the regular city council meetings.

Again ... understand this department is lucky to have three officers working during a shift. If you compare Kyle with other law enforcement agencies of their size, you'll see the officer to citizen ratio is about 1 officer per 10,000 citizens per shift.(That's not including the daily transit population. Other comparable cities averages are 1 to 1.5 officers per 1,000 citizens per shift. Don't believe me, check for yourself, it's your community, I don't sleep there.

Wish you luck.
