If the insurance companies want selective enforcement of seat belt laws let them pay for it.

In short, the Bedford Township deputies are patrolling Bedford while these grants are taking place.

While I can appreciate that these grants provide an opportunity for deputies to earn a little extra overtime pay without it impacting the county's budget, as a taxpayer I see them the same way BeerSnob sees them. Ultimately they are coming from our tax dollars, just a different bucket of our tax dollars.

So our (or maybe mine, who knows) issue isn't with you, Sheriff. You're just applying for grants that are available out there. It's the lazy bureaucrats at the Michigan Office of Highway Safety Planning and NHTSA who don't want to spend any time thinking of how these resources could be put to better use than simply writing tickets.

As someone who regularly applies for grants from the National Science Foundation, I have to say some of our safety organizations at the state and federal level can do a whole lot better to ensure we get a better bang for our tax dollars.

Agree, the problem with this grant is that you have to comply with how it's written.  $30,000 for seat belt enforcement and $30,000 for the drunk driving portion, that's how they sneak in the seat belt enforcement.  You can't have one without the other and if you don't comply they send the money to another law enforcement agency.  I've thought about not renewing it but we don't have the $30,000 from our budget to enforce the drunk driving portion of it without the grant.  Trust me, I get it, just don't like it!

I do not know how we could get more "bang for our buck" than we currently do out of the deputies assigned to Bedford.  They are kept very busy and trust me, deal with a whole lot more than what you see in the "crime log" of the MEN.  I have had to call them for a few minor things and the response time can't be beat.  I wish we had the resources to have a few more down here.  We keep them busy, remember, for everything you see on the crime log you must add anassbuttload of time for the paperwork/report/forms that need to be done.

I may regret asking this, but what sort of "minor things" required calling the police?

Mostly people illegally hunting on our land.  I was referred to the DNR and they were pretty awesome.

How did that go? Did the Sheriff Dept. actually show up and then tell you to contact the DNR? Did they or central dispatch contact the DNR? I'm curious how that went.
