The six-day manhunt to catch Chris Dorner cost the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department more than $500,000, reports ABC News.

The agency used 125 deputies to scour the Big Bear area following the murder of a Riverside Police officer and Irvine couple. The LAPD had yet to total the cost of providing security details for 50 officers named in Dorner's manifesto.

Dorner knew exactly where to hit the agencies, talk about throwing the budget out the window, let alone the killings of officers.

$500k is about a quarter of waht the trial would have cost, looks cost a cost savings to Calif.

How do you value a human life? What cost was involved in the training of the lost officers and the loss to the families? This is the cost for doing the job and doing the job well.
