CMC Government Supply Asks America to Support Their Local Police

DALLAS, TX  May 14 , 2013 – CMC Government Supply would like to encourage Americans to support their local police departments.  With the financial crisis that the nation is facing, police departments are having to cut budgets, all the while expenses, such as gasoline, are continuing to go up.

Tax revenues are down across the nation and this greatly impacts the funding allotted to our local officers. Not only does your local police department need your personal support, they desperately need your financial support. One of the most important ways citizens can help is to buy local so tax dollars will stay in the city.  In addition, your votes make a difference.  Vote for and support bills and propositions that fund your local departments.

The latest census reports that the average operating costs for one police officer per fiscal year is $116, 500 and $260 per resident. These operating costs, include salary, benefits, equipment and gear and fuel expenses. On average police departments have 10 officers. Which equals over one million dollars that even small towns must come up with to fund their police department.

When funding isn’t met and budgets are cut, it is not only the police department that suffers, but the residents as well. Crime goes up and response times get longer when there are not enough officers to service a community.

CMC Government Supply recognizes how important the local police department is to each and every community in America. This week is National Police Week and there is no better time than to say thank you to the men and women who serve and to honor those that have fallen in the line of duty while serving and protecting over this last year.

“CMC Government Supply is proud to serve and support our local Dallas/Ft. Worth area law enforcement community as well as that of the State of Texas and the nation.  We thank them and wish all the best to our police and their families,” stated Debby Parker, Vice President of CMC Government Supply.

CMC Government Supply carries a large variety of gear, equipment and firearms that are available to Government and Law Enforcement buyers. For an extensive list visit their website at www.cmcgov.com.
