There are no new chargers rolling on the streets for the LRPD. The new (and few) chargers that have been assigned went to the Chief and the Assistant Chiefs. The 24/7 patrol have not received new cars or tasers. The 2 LRPD classes that were supposed to graduate in 2012, became 1 class. Not an increase in personnel, but a replacement to retirees, terminations and officers that are pulled out of patrol for "special units." I would like to see a check list of exactly what has been spent and exactly where those purchases are being utilized. I have, however, seen mulitple "planning" meetings on how to spend the money since we voted. Confusing since the campaign last Fall explained that there were pressing needs that must be met immediately.
