state police- save money
I agree with getting rid of the state police and letting the sheriff's office do it, but i can not see that happening. What about puting them in counties that want them and use them. Some counties do not even use ISP. That would then save money by not hiring more officers . Also why does ISP new officers go to 12 more weeks of police academy after they do the regular 10 weeks like other non isp officers. Get rid of that. They are no better then other officers- that would save a ton of money!
