Does your town support or respect your department?

Do the people of your town wave and smile every time you pass through or do they cut their eyes and complain ALL the time


  • My department rarely receives any complaints, but at the same time, we don't have people getting excited to see us.
  • Our city council says they do. Even after they stopped our retirement, stopped the incentive programs for reaching certain training and certification milestones. One raise in 5 years in time to coincide with insurance cost increase. They raised our med insurance to an unaffordable rate for our families. 1000 deductible costs about 500 a month. Do that on a rookies pay. Respect. Maybe some but not enough.
  • They like the Sheriffs Office when they need us, we'll see how much they like us soon were asking for a tax increase.
  • I get a lot of respect and only have a small group that doesn't like me. But I know it is not me they dont like, it is the job. Usually just the ones that "didn't deserve the ticket".
  • City Councils actions speak no. When it comes to the citizens it is mixed of course.
  • Here with CSPD, I would say no. There's been a number of incidents in recent years with the department that has put it in a negative light in the community. El Paso County Sheriff's Office, however, has a lot of public support - this is evident through the fact that Proposal 1A, Sheriff Maketa's idea, passed with overwhelming support back in November.
