How many officers
March 14, 2014 | 11:16 AM

My comment was based on "Councilman Jim Heitkemper asked if he was asking for a higher number of officers in hopes of at least getting some help.

"I said ask for 10 to try to get five," Kessinger said. "Five is what we need.""

That is from the experts. If the Sherriff says he needs 10, I believe him. He didn't say, I would like to have 10, or it would be nice to have 10. He asked for 10, but "Five is what we need" -Kessinger

My argument was that if you need 5, only ask for 5. If you need more ask for more. If you only need 5, then it stands to reason anything above that would be a waste... And therefore sitting at DQ not working.
