About: Columbia Police Department Activity Report - for June 2018

By Ralph Roy Waggener
Personal commentary. Opinions are those of the writer

On the subject of police car mileage, the only way they could possibly get 12 plus miles per gallon would be by driving the police cars home, where they could get better miles per gallon.

There is no way these cars could get good per gallon mileage anyway else. I believe some police officers live outside the city limits, but I could be wrong.

When making averages you need to know more than just the miles driven.

Just my normal self in asking these questions; we still have one of the highest police budgets of any town around us, and they live in a $1 million, 4 hundred thousand police mansion!

You won't want to print this and I understand, but wanted to point out some of our money problems here in Columbia!
