  • “Officers” should be plural, not possessive!

  • where in the article above is “officers” in any capacity used?

  • The word “officer’s” is in the comment by Taxed To Death. I didn’t say anything about the article at all. Please read carefully.

  • Every time a police officer is making a stop or answering a call, his or her life and well being is put at risk. The dangers incurred doing the job , putting their family at risk of losing a spouse and parent justify being well paid. I just want to add that I am not in law enforcement or have any connection to the same but I do have a healthy respect for what they and the folks in the fire dept. do.

  • Taxed to death…shut up.
