Lake Elsinore - Lowest Police Count In USA

The Perfect City For Crime

Why is Lake Elsinore a magnet for drugs, homeless people and crime? Look no further. Lake Elsinore has one of the lowest amounts of police officers per resident in the entire US.

Our council members and city manager [CITY] are obsessed with quantitative growth. They have wet dreams about building more homes, more parks and bringing more thrift stores.

Security is the least of the CITY's worries. They'll tell you there is no money for more police. Yet, our CITY will sink Lake Elsinore $20 million in debt for improvements to a campground no resident will ever use. Talk about wrong priorities.

Lake Elsinore has 0.888 police officers for every 10,000 residents. The CITY pays for 130 hours a day, that's 5.41 officers on permanent duty. Two of them are traffic motor cops who do not answer calls but only write traffic tickets.

If you wonder how that compares to other cities in the US (traffic cops included), check this list with 2015 statistics for major US cities. These statistics are expressed in police officers for every 10,000 residents.

This has nothing to do with money but everything with blatant neglect. This is BAD MANAGEMENT, or no management for that matter. This is hard proof the CITY does not care, not about you, not about your tax money, not about your safety and not about your home value. The only hope for Lake Elsinore is to flush out all the council members and the city manager.
