I feel like a idiot but what was the respond time? Within 5-7 minutes my street was blocked off, I received
a call from the Police dept. and they ask me to walk outside and describe what I am wearing. There were
a dozen cops in front of my house.Man I felt like an ass.I was told to stay outside while they check my home.
They realized I pushed the wrong button by mistake but they still walked through the house.
I apologized for my stupidity because it took them away from more important duties. The officer in charge
told me no problem and thank me for serving in the military, he noticed my military photo while checking my home.
My point the respond time in my city is amazing, how is it in your city???
Unfortunately the Police don't receive credit for all their duties. Over the years I have had encounters with
our local Police and I must say in our small city we have one of the best Police dept. in Southern Calif.
Talking with one of the officers outside while the other officers checking my home told me we must
keep it a secret, our community is very safe...
I still feel like an idiot, I will catch hell from the old lady when she get home.
The overall crime rate in my city is 31% lower than the national average. We are safer than 61% of
cities in the U.S. There is a 1 in 49 chance of becoming a victim of ANY crime.
This is all due to our Police Dept. I may add I only live three blocks from our Police station.
