I'm envious. What state do you live in HCCW? Here in California I can barely get through to PD Dispatch to take my calls seriously when there's a problem at my car wash.
I have 31 high resolution cameras and don't cry wolf.
Utah. I think we must not have much crime? I always call the nonemergency dispatch number and an officer still returns my call right away. I tell them it’s not an emergency, that’s why I don’t call 911. People are so nice here though, I guess I shouldn’t be surprised. I’ve been here 27 years and when I travel out of state I can’t wait to get back. I miss the super friendly atmosphere. (Don’t tell anyone. Since Covid I feel like the state is getting invaded. I hope it doesn’t change the fantastic culture.)
I have had so many people over the years roll their eyes when they hear where I’m from and start ragging on the LDS - usually they get around to making some crack about polygamy (not practiced for 100+ years I think??). Anyway, I tell them, oh ya, the LDS are horrible! Never come here. (As I snicker. They are absolutely fantastic. Best culture you can imagine. They raise wonderful respectful kids, they never take government handouts, etc. Trust me, they are not the problem with this country. In fact I’d argue they are the answer.)
