  1. Pat Galliher says:

    I think it’s a great idea to show how the PD resources are being used. To be able to understand this properly, shouldn’t MLN also tell us the number of police officers on staff and the budget? I understand the PD budget is just over $6.2 million per year. Using that number, each time the PD does an ID check at a casino or checks on a suspicious person (11 times), it costs us an average of just under $700. Also, not knowing how many police officers are on staff, how can I use this information? If Mesquite has 30 officers (I have no idea the true number), than these statistics would indicate that each officer, on average, responds to less than one call daily.
