How's this one to get a conversation going?

What size/type/locality is the agency you work for?

Mine is a small (25 sworn,9 civilian) Sheriff's Office in a rural county.

I am a Special Agent in a federal agency, but I DO know who both of my parents are.:lol: I am currently assigned to El Paso, TX.

The last I heard, we were the 2nd largest armed federal agency, if you count our uniformed personnel.

I AM the police department in our small town in Western Washington.

Up to a week ago, we had 6 reserves too, but in a stroke of genius, the council decided that having reserves who donated thier time to help patrol the town was costing too much gas money, so they voted to disband the reserve program.

BTW, I also submitted my resignation over the deal, will be gone out of there at the end of the month. I am really glad I have a business that allows me the luxury to do tell them to take thier job and shovel it, (as in the immortal words of Constable Huxley).

Don't we just love our "town/county/city fathers"? :mad:

I patrol a County in So. central Mo. I have 16 deputies with me . A year ago we only had 7 but we got a sales tax passed allowing us to do some hiring . Our county is the thrid largest in Mo. 1160 sq.mi. most of which is gravel rds. We have a 55 bed facitlity , again two years ago we housed 26 tops . We now have 7 jail staff , two secs., 5 disp., two civil server , two investigaters and one drug agent , 1 dare officer soon to be 2 . We are overrun with METH dealers because of our rural area and limited manpower . I love working in a woodsy outdoor environment being a born and bred hillbilly who sought out education then chose Law Enforcement as a career . I have ten years service here beginning at age 22 . I also build holsters for a subcontracter who builds for WILSON COMBAT . If I can get a full time job hunting or shooting though then I will have my dream job .

Welcome aboard. I looked at the website. Nice stuff! Do you guys make the WC Featherweight also? I was part of the entertainment at the CW renactment near Springfield last summer, sure did like the country and the folks. :smile:

We do not make two or three of Wilsons holsters , The ones that include a plastic laminate are handled by Safariland as they hold the patent on the process . we make the Summer Companion , Lo-Profile , Belt slide , And Rapid Response and mag pouches and Belts . Thanks for having me here , I really like the Company I am finding here . Things were to hostile over at GT so I came back to my 1911 lovin roots .

I am the Chief of Police (used to be called Town Marshal)in Tremont , Mississippi or like Marty Hayes said, I am THE "police department" in Tremont. His earlier post I can relate to.

I also am a patrolman in Mantachie, MS. We have 3 fulltime officers and one part time officer there. Population is 1200.
