On a typical day if a shift is fully staffed 6, but if they are short as little as 4. This is not their (the deputies) fault nor the Sheriff's Office. This is something the COUNTY needs to address! It is uncalled for to expect 4 men/women to cover all of Augusta County. But when they are short, they have to do what they have to do. Which may mean running from Craigsville to Crozet to answer a call. Again I'm so thankful that they choose to do the job the do!
Crozet is in another county, so they don't have to go there, at least. Expecting even six deputies to patrol the whole county is absurd, but they do their best. It is heartbreaking to read all these negative comments when these deputies work so hard to keep the county safe for us all.

That is really not enough police coverage for the 2nd largest county in all of Virginia...even quadruple that (24) doesn't sound like enough. (Way back in the day, parts of Augusta county ran all the way to the Mississippi River, and included most of West Va and Kentucky...jus' sayin' :)

I'm sorry I meant Crimora! But I agree, all the negative comments when he was doing his job! They should pray for him and be thankful for the job he and many others do on a daily basis! It is very sad that this is the way people will always be. The ones complaining about them driving too fast will be the ones complaining when they don't arrive at their call fast enough or return their phone call prompt enough!

The cops don't run the same type of tire that you and I do. They use Goodyear Eagle speed rated tires. I don't ever recall seeing one of these blow out and being listed as the cause of a police car crash.
And even so, blowing out a rear tire is not half as bad as blowing a front tire.
If you didnt see where it was stated that a back tire blowing may have been what caused to lose control of the police car- then you did NOT read the story very good!!!
