Maybe there would not be so much trouble with our local police if they used different criteria in hiring local town police. Maybe different profiles for hiring local police officers and their demeanor should be considered. A local police officer hired to protect and serve should have the same demeanor as a firefighter. If you had the personality, demeanor and character traits of firefighters and hired and trained a firefighter candidate as a police officer. Then maybe the police would get it. That their occupation/career is not to be a tough guy or gal but actually to protect and serve our rights as citizens. What we need today is what we had years ago, the police at one time were regarded as peace makers, local neighborhood citizens who were looked up to and therefore commanded the respect of our citizenry. Salaries are too high, along with details, it's time to bring this position back to earth and hire people who are interested in public service and not so much about the money and the power trip.
