[Editor note: According to the Pierce County Sheriff Ed Troyer at the Parkland Community meeting last week, the Sheriff’s Department is short 33 officers in this area. Service levels are down and the jail is only being used for people committing serious crimes such are murder and assaults. Have you noticed more property crime lately? There is a revolving door when these folks are caught an charged. They are being released back into the community within a couple hours.]
