LIMA — Four Allen County police chiefs visited the Lima Rotary Club meeting Monday to discuss community issues and explain how the job has changed over the last decade due to shifting public expectations and emerging new technologies.
As is the case with many governmental agencies, law enforcement departments have been asked to do more with less as budgets shrink. The job has evolved as a result.
Shawnee Township Police Chief Mike Keith said his department began dealing with diminishing budgets in 2005. At that time, new equipment purchases were spaced further apart and training courses weren’t pursued unless required, Keith said.
