Community policing programs have really paid off. With all that Federal grant
money floating around all the data in the past two decades has looked rosy.But look at the courts, jails and prisons. Read the police blotters. Talk to

firepower? You'd think with these declines we'd get a peace
dividend.Methinks something's rotten in the data. Lake Wobegon comes
comes to the police station.
