    which have had shortages of police officers, it was usually a result of austerity i.e. cuts in federal and state funds (though Homeland Security has been a cash cow) and officers being called to active duty in the NG which has put stress on small towns with 1-5 officer forces in the first place or a combination of the two.

    Local speed trap here reports ticket revenues were so far down the past year that they had to have a fund raiser for their PD.  I have to wonder how many scofflaws and speeders (speed limit is 15 mph) contributed (local joke says thinking too fast can get you arrested)
