More companies are using "loss prevention" and private contractors to protect them. My security sytem cost 250,000.00 and it deterstheft both internally and externally. That could one reason why the statistics have changed.I am glad to see new blood that knows at least he is there to serve us and not his own public persona.
@fatguy. I'm just saying is he does not have the respect from the troops. What I meant by quoting his last sentence is he will tell you (especially those affluent citizens) exactly what they want to hear, even if its not 100% accurate. I have a co-worker (well to do) who child ran away. Keep in mind that this runaway did so on her own as opposed to being kidnapped. Randy Boyd had extra resources out on this one kid. Now back when I had a scanner and could hear the police radio, kids runaway all the time. Especially those down on the south side. They (south side) not others get the attention that this little brat got. Just sayin.
I still believer that a bank robbery took place one block from the police station in broad daylight has not ben solved. What service?
Who is Randy Boyd? The Deputy Chief for the Victoria Police Department is Roy Boyd.
I don't get your point about Boyd's last sentence in the article. Seems like a 100% accurate statement to me. I'm glad he recognizes that his department exists to serve the public and is funded with tax dollars.
Great chance for businesses here. On a side note, VPD officers gringe that Boyd may be the next Chief. His last sentence says it all, We're your public servants," Boyd said. "You're already paying for it with your tax dollars." Yes man.
