((our officers get on pins and needles associated with that. we don't know if there are people that are out there that are depressed or whether they are going to do a copy cat type crime. so it's unfortunate because it's escalated across the u.s. prevelant than it has ever been in the past. we don't know if that's from what's going on in the media in the previous months associated with policing but it's important for our police officers to stay vigilant and be aware of their surroundings just like any other individual so you don't become a victim of a crime.)) ### weather open ((tedd florendo))
