I'm moving from a N Suburban area that does it's own policing to one of these Anoka areas and hope I'm happy. I've been disappointed we don't seem to take crime more seriously where I'm at. I think we need to dump these "School resource officers" and lock up Juveniles that commit crime. Trying to help them is okay, but not also punishing them appropriately won't help society. These roles may help, but they are not acting as cops and they have not been successful in reducing crime or drug us.
