VIDEO: Michigan Agencies Need to Fill 4,000 Vacant Posts

There are thousands of law enforcement jobs open all over the state of Michigan, 4,000 to be exact. So why are they still open?

Local departments in the Detroit area say they can't fill the slots. Wayne County Sheriff's Chief Robert Dunlop said he's at a loss.

"I really haven't figured that out yet," Dunlop said. "People don't seem to be really interested in going into the field of law enforcement or corrections."

Dunlop believes unflattering media coverage of law enforcement has made the profession less attractive to qualified recruits.

"Every time you look on the media there's something negative about something the police are doing as opposed to the many good things that the young men and women do here every day on an average of 16 hours a day," Dunlop told Fox 2 Detroit.

WOW, really. Can't find any young people who want to work long hours for crap pay for idiots who are so busy kissing butt they have have forgotten what a real cop is or how to do the job.
If I knew then, 27 years ago what being a cop would evolve into I would have become a fireman instead.
As long as the press & politicians keep using the police as the scapegoats for what our country is turning into who would want to go into law enforcement.
