SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON FARMER'S ADVOCATE APRIL 13, 1972 C---5 SUBSCRIBE TO THE SPIRIT-ADVOCATE The Rising Cost Of Law Enforcemenf Many people are opposed to having more law enforcement officers in Jefferson County. They argue that if more Deputy Sheriffs are hired, their taxes will go up. In- creased property taxes are particularly hard on older people living on Social Security or a pension. If the crime rate continues to climb, even if no more officers are hired, we will all pay more . . . our theft and homeowners insur- ance policies will cost more . . . just about everything we buy will cost more. In stores this is particularlY- true. If shoplifting losses are 3%, you are.charged 3% more for what you buy with your haPd-earned dollars. If shopliftiflg losses are 10% or 15%, you will be charged that much more. If more autos are stolen, your theft insurance will increase. If more hub caps are stolen and windows broken, your vandal- ism insurance will go up. The most sensible thing is to have adequate law enforcement.., it is cheaper and is a way to keep Jefferson County a good place to live. You should also remember that adequate law enforcement depends on your Prosecuting Attorney . . . if he doesn't properly present a criminal prosecution to the Judge and Jury, tax dollars spent on Deputy Sheriffs are wasted.
