  1. Let’s look at Tadelman and put him under the microscope for the Deputy Pyle gay pedophile case and why the Dept. protected Pyle!

  2. Sounds like a good program as long as they dont do like Cary’s and make you nothing but a Traffic Cone at events where they need help.

    Where are the programs that allow citizens to actually help and patrol and report and help prevent real crime near where they live?

    All we hear is “insurance” as the excuse not to, from lazy Police Chiefs, whereas other towns and states make it part of their overall community policing.

    Oh well, traffic cone duty is easy.

    I’m sure the County Program is a good one as far as learning and seeing what the County Sherrifs do which is all good.

  3. I have no idea what their trying to accomplish, when it appears to me that turn signals are far to advanced for most humans.

  4. Rob Tadelman is a Big Government freak who is another shadow Democrat masquerading as a Republican.
