under staffed based on National Average.

Based on the National average of 22 Police Officers per 10,000 Citizen capita; Harrison county is understaffed. If Harrison County is almost 40K citizens, then the Police department is not even at half strength. This would in my opinion force officer to work a lot of overtime, thus creating a higher cost for the time and half pay. It would be a good business practice to hire more officers to offset the overtime cost and get our county closer to the national average. I want my family protected during times of duress and you should too. When our county grows in size it will attract more to its vulnerabilities.
