Shape Up, TRAX Cops



I have been riding TRAX just about five days a week now for about 18 months. I figure I have seen about 10 police officers actually on TRAX and about the same number standing just outside of the trains. Since there are supposed to be about 20 or more officers, I am still wondering where the police officers are. I figure UTA must assign them to a Dunkin Donuts store most every day; otherwise, they would have to eventually make their way to TRAX.

TRAX police department has to be the worst-run police department I have ever witnessed.
