The state of Sand Crabs, facing the southern border of our country, has experienced an increase in crime, and a
deterioration of effective policing. Most of the crime increase involves crimes of theft, robbery, burglary. Almost all have been crimes of violence without resulting arrests. Residents and businesses alike have been victimized. It has also been documented that over the years there has been an increase in illegal border crossings. Police have literally been under attack. There has been a 32% increase of officers injured during active crime deployment in the last 18 months. This has resulted in several full disability severances pf female officers. At the same time, the State Police force has experienced increased numbers of civil law suits and federal investigation attributed in a rise in the shooting of criminal suspects by a largely young officer base. Many senior officers claim that these young, limited English speaking officers lack patience when responding to crime scenes and do not understand local culture. Rising temperatures have made out-door patrols a grueling operation.
In response to these conditions, a group of state legislators are developing a bill, which will be introduced into the legislature with full hearing, to increase state police forces. It limits member of the state police force to male citizens of the United States who are over the age of 20 years and who have lived in the state for 12 months.
