    I’m not sure that can honestly be said about a lot of California’s cops. They haven’t been responding or prosecuting car break-ins for years.

    I'd say both being complicit because one or the other is not doing their job instead of taking action is equally bad.

    This is a serious question, not intended as a "gotcha". Has your workload increased related to coronavirus? If so, in what way? What are you, or other police officers, doing more of, directly related to the coronavirus, and/or mandatory non-essential business shutdowns and "stay home" orders?

    It's really not the police, it's the result of crazy leftist Dimocrat politicians and DA's demanding these kind of of policices.

    It is pure policy. It is Democrat Party wealth redistribution. For example in San Fran, everyone gets $900 of free merchandise with every "shopping trip". Police do not respond. If the "shopper" is unlucky, the shopper gets a ticket. I thought I recall Krasner doing this in Philly with the free merch set at $750. Don't know if it was implemented but I thought he proposed it early on.

    Who pays for this welfare? Initially insurance companies, but thereafter it is the law-abiding citizen who pays in higher insurance premiums across the board and higher prices at the store by merchants who have to cover the cost of shrinkage (retail buzzword for shoplifting and other theft).

    It is policy. Just the same as the Philly Police Chief's new policy of not jailing persons involved in vandalism, theft and burglary. Those are the hallmarks of looting. Green light for looting. How is that not policy? It was done on purpose.

    I don't think it is very easy to draw a line between the two.

    If the store personnel see this happening maybe it's time to turn off the security cameras and lock the doors and do what justice is needed.

    The normal calls for service has gone way down. People are not calling about BS. Necessary interviews are done over the phone. There is a SOP in place on how to respond to certain calls, whether it is to simply keep a distance, wear gloves and face mask or to call for special teams that would wear much more protective gear.

    We are starting to see some cops, firefighters and EMS come back positive. Those numbers are expected to rise.

    Most crime has dropped significantly. The radio has been unbelievably quiet. Shootings and stabbings are continuing though, along with a daily homicide or two. Commercial burglaries are prevalent, obviously due to the fact that the buildings are not open or occupied.

    I liken it to a blizzard right now. Very few people are out and about and things are quiet, but that may change in about a week.

    California is a big state. I have read about issues with certain police departments, but to paint every department with the same brush is incorrect.

    Whether a department has other issues, I don't see how that correlates to a DA's or departments guidelines on crimes. If a DA states they are not going to prosecute any amount a marijuana possession or any prostitution activity, why would officers continue to make arrests for those incidents, corrupt/brutal or not?
