A buddy of mine was talking to one of the county sheriff deputies. He had made a call because some kids were running their 4X4s around on some of his property tearing it up (this isn't close next to his house). It took them more than 30 minutes to show up. This was a non-emergency call of course. But he was told the same thing. Maybe two deputies on call in the whole county at one time. And if they are in the middle of one call when you need them well they have to finish what they are doing first before they can come and help you. The deputy's advice to my friend? "If you catch them and they drive their truck at you like they're trying to hit you, shoot 'em."
