Has anyone seen our police chief?
That seems to be the question on every one's mind this week.
With the Basic Law Enforcement Test deadline less than two weeks away one might suggest that RoMo is studying, holed up at some pricey resort on taxpayer dollars.
But who knows? Maybe he's hiking the Appalachian Trail?
As the bodies continue to hit the floor, the chief's empty promise of coming out to every major crime scene remains unfulfilled. He can't make the crime scene if he's MIA now can he?
Chief Monroe wasn't in his office this past week and his last "official" appearance was (we give him credit for this) at the homicide at the Timber Ridge Apartment on July 9, 2009.
Meanwhile up in Richmond, according to a July 15th press release they are trying to reign in some of RoMo's half baked ideas, including putting the brakes on officer take home cars. According to the memo immediately taking 28 cars out of the program will save The City of Richmond at least $98,000.00 in the current fiscal year.
