  1. Whatbthis city needs is a couple or more bloodhound tracking dogs. They are much better at following scent than any other breed. The TBPS service dog might Ben OK for biting someone but sure can’t beat a bloodhound for tracking people.

    1. What this city really needs is a few stores to hire a few very experienced enforcers and when these punks come in, give them alot more than they expect. Rotate the enforcers so their location remains anonymous and watch the robberies decrease when word gets out what happened to the would be robbers. Once they know there is a 50/50 chance of getting your head kicked in maybe some of them will smarten up. That is the only way the robberies and store break ins will be reduced. Leaving it up to the current system just is a revolving door and endless repeats of similiar behavior.
