I always thought the rule for law enforcement is one step above. So, one prisoner equals at least two officers.

We as LEO are supposed to be the best trained. What the hell happen, first of all no LEO should have been transporting a suspect by themselves in any situation. What a big mistake all the way around, What a loss for all.
