Do We Need To Spend So Much On Law Enforcement?

Editor:

I'm no financial expert, but a quick glimpse of the budget pie shows 46 percent of Gila County's budget goes for law enforcement and judicial services. Do we really need so much law enforcement for a county of 45,000 people?

That equals $26,200,000 $582 for every man, woman and child in the county.

Remember, we still have DPS and police departments.

Just an observation.
