At Least Chevy Chase is Free of Double Parking

I read today in the paper (ugh Washington Times that got left on a Metro seat) that due to a decrease in crime in the Chevy Chase area, the DC cops (40 of them on patrol each night in that area) are resorting to ticketing for parking violations. Is it just me or does 40 cops seem excessive for a wealthy, suburban area that has low crime? Especially when these cops are finding it hard to keep busy. Luckily the DC police department has a requirement that if cops aren't fighting crime they better be fighting parking over 2 hours at a meter. Here's a thought. How about these cops get redeployed to the higher crime areas of the DC area. That might make too much sense I guess.

Do police really get "deployed" like military personel? Isn't it more of a reassignment?

And so often their neighborhood assignments are very political. You can't let those bourgie (Goo-Jee) people in CC feel any less protected. As long as the crime is relegated to SE, everything is "as it should be"....
