Should this be an OP ED in the Daily Courier? At least on our website!

New Stat Article by Frank Morin

“State Troopers are not the Fix” is up on our website! Please go towww.securingoursafety.org to read it! Frank’s article has been well received and many of you have expressed a desire to make that article another OP ED as well—WHAT SAY YOU?

Here is just one of the many responses we have received from Frank’s article:

Archie,

I have been interviewed several times but have never read my interview anywhere. My response to the issue is that more presence from OSP is welcome as we go through these trying times, but should in no way be construed as a replacement of a counties justice system. We do need to resolve our current situation and find a level of protection and service that we can agree on.

Thanks for all of your help in this very important issue. I think if we can get the facts out to the people we will make progress solving our public safety issue.

Senator Herman Baertschiger Jr.

Great point Senator! Great job Frank! In Frank’s next article, he will factually be tracking the number of Measure 11 Crimes that have occurred in Josephine County since the depletion of our Criminal Justice System. As we know, we the depletion of the Sheriff’s Office and rural patrols, communication in the entire County has suffered. Frank will explain what Measure 11 Crimes in Oregon are and examine not only if there is an actual increase in the number of Measure 11 Crimes in our County, but whether the Measure 11 Crimes have increased in the City of Grants Pass.
