What do you think about our police department (good or bad). Our community is growing at an alarming rate, we need more officers in the street and they need better equipment. What's your thoughts VG? Remember, if you had a ticket and are just ticked off save it! I'm looking for real issues and observations not just Some flame posts.

We have real issues here with meth labs, lots of property crime, and thefts. Where are all the neighborhood watches for example? What are we as constituents doing to "self-police" our sleepy little town. Do we want it to become another Radcliff? That city has more section 8 housing and thugs than I have seen in 15 years! Do you think it's crossing 313?

Let me know what you think about this topix.

I think we have and always have had a great police department. They could use more officers since the new development and BRAC is turning our sleepy little town into an extended knox neighborhood. But this town has always had some great officers. I just wish there was funding for more and also for more equipment to help them with the new crime that BRAC implants have brought from their high crime St Louis. There should be a push to organize more neighborhood watches. The police need the citizens to be more involved in being their eyes and ears for the crime being committed around them. I never fail to call them when I see something that isn't right. They are always prompt in showing up and there are many, Officers Walker, Carr, Riggs, and Williams that has the respect of all in our community, especially the children and young people. They are excellent officers, who just don't get paid what they are worth. Sorry the female Officer PJ ? I think, is no longer with them. She was awesome. Haven't met the new one. I think Vine Grove has always had the best in Hardin County.

It's Sergeant Karr not Carr. I would know he's my dad. Vine Grove could use some help in funding the police department. Reguardless it's still better than Radcliff or Etown.

VGPD overall is pretty good,they do have a few Judge Dredd/Barney Fife's that tend to give them a bad reputation though. They're the ones who like to grief people for the most random things, if your a local you know who these two guys are so I don't need to bother naming them here. If we could get them either under control or replaced by competent cops. VGPD would be an outstanding dept.

I think our police dept needs better professional standards. Ive lived in VG for 6 years now and Ive two interactions woth the police dept. One was because I needed to ask a question, which was not met with any type of seriousness. The last time was in relation to someone on parole making a complaint about me. The responding officer didnt introduce himself, he immediately assumed i was guilty would not listen to anything i had to say and didnt ask me any questions. He was rude, unprofessional and unskilled. In my opinion i do not trust out police dept at all. They are only interested in serving their own interest or not dealing with anything that goes on.

I agree, I feel the same way the officers in the VGPD are pretty much useless. They never want to make a report. I find they are undependable, unreasonable and lazy. the worse ones are officer Holendaize and officer Davis.. Im pretty sure our little ole town is full of rejects from the police academy. I have never in my 20 years of living here seen the likes of the what we have today. Most of them are Jerks..If I need them and I find that the responding officer is going to be one of the ones mentioned above I just has soon has not ask for help...there useless
