Does anyone know why there are two police in a car; do we have some kind of srime in the town that we don't know about? Or is it because when one gets car sick from doing circles around the block the other one takes over - every other town a lot bigger than this has one in a car. Can't wait to see this budget for police that they will come up with ........

KGG - I couldn't agree with you more!! I'm so glad everyone else gets the same response from the mayor when asking a question.... I thought he just did it to me.

Everytime we see a Hainesville squad car, it only has one officer in it! And what the heck is "srime"? How many fingers am I holding up right now? Hmmmmmmm....sounds like somebody has been dipping into Otis's moonshine! "Srime", seeing more than one officer in a squad. Tsk, tsk!

Actually, almost every time I have seen the squads in town, including the time before they actually went "live" and started playing real police officers, there has been two persons in the squad. And no, the second person was not in the back seat! Give KGG a break, have you ever heard of typos before? mr/mrs perfect?

Why sure we will give KGG a typo break. The police officers aren't "playing real police officers", they ARE and WERE "real" officers before they joined the Hainesville force. So, since we gave KGG a break at your request, please consider doing the same in the "respect dept." for the Hainesville Police Officers. Only one officer per car...head to Lens Crafters so you can see clearly next time you spot a HPD car...I think there's a coupon in Sunday's paper.

After they read a post here they said they were going to, I know many residents have. They should get their butt up there and thank them, and give them a certificate - they are professional, team players, and have all their ducks in a row....

Such a busy town and sba - sounds like you have a personal relationship with the Sheriff's Dept. Do you work there?

They did do a good job, and so does the HPD!

All have been trained extensively...PD may have more "specialization".
