Or, Why We Have Sheriffs: Seems the little town of Farmland has found itself having to charge most -- or all -- of their tiny police force in a possible theft.
No problem; the county sheriff's department will be responding to police calls instead.
Compare and contrast: In unified Indianapolis/Marion County, when we have a problem with our unified police agency...they just start moving things around, like deck chairs on the Titanic. Except nobody even bothers to play a few bars of Nearer My God To Thee. And it probably won't sink; they just keep patching it up and ramming into -- so to speak -- icebergs.
When we had IPD and MCSD, they'd even nick one another for speeding. Guess that got fixed.
