Reader says there’s enough public safety and officers in Sugar Land
I enjoyed your story detailing your traffic stop with Sugar Land’s PD. We have so many officers in Sugar Land because every time the city does a citizen survey about concerns, i.e. what is important, and what the city can do for the citizens, the number one answer is always “public safety”.
The city then uses this info as a mandate to hire more officers. If the citizens would just think about what they are doing. The only place to put more officers is on traffic stops (tickets). How about asking the city for a water park, basketball courts, places for teens and pre teens to hang out, family friendly bike trails, fishing ponds, anything but public safety and more officers. Public safety is not an issue in Sugar Land.
Love your column and hope you will continue.
