Where are the beat cops??? They are trying to keep up with the thousands of calls for service. With the number of officers right now...all you can do is run from call to call. The numbers that were in the newspaper recently showed very clearly how short handed they are. City Hall has not done anything to bolster the ranks because this current academy will be absorbed by attrition and no additional numbers will be realized.

hmmmmmmm well before it was being short handed, then the police were added back and it is still we are short handed. It seems to me the gangbangers really don't care how many are on the force. These thugs need to be wearing ankle bracelets and chopping brush in a snake pit.

If you take a poll, you will find most citizens, and EVERY police officer would agree with you and your suggestion for these thugs. But you need to address the court system about punishment, not the police. And by the way, the TPD manning level, right now, are approximately the same number that they had in 1985. When you lose 25-30 officers a year to attrition, then city hall might want to hire folks to at least keep up with attrition. Which they obviously don't.

Gangs had nothing to do with the homicides involving these two brothers.....and beat cops don't prevent and/or stop homicides, unless they are just right there when it's about to happen. This family had a tragedy but the TPD homicide detail did everything humanly possible to bring the suspects to the court system. Suspects were identified but without physical evidence, charges cannot be pursued. The lone surviving suspect has had to talk to someone about his crime, and that witness coming forward would possibly clear this case. But the volumes of work done on this case show how important it is the police detectives, as well as the victims' family.
