    Rerun this story using another DETECTIVES name.The call for help by this Detective will be followed by F— him. Due to his rep,and bad repore. No one will give a thought to the Crime nor care to help. Find one or two good officers to be the people person on all matters concerning “we need help” case’s. Would it really matter how we get them as long as we do.
    Officer Garcia maybe one as he has done well at the high school. The Police Department can fix its rep in time, but until then “Think Before You Print” It is worth a try, and have that officer drive around with photo at hand as he goes about his day. Showing, and speaking to those he knows,and know him.
