    Ex Bama, Jackson…. Broken Windows… Police who take care of the little stuff through strict enforcement will reduce crime.

    Do not blame the police! It’s not the Law’s problem for the actions of these individuals. Those natural born criminals chose to commit the crime. Even if Atmore had 200 Police on patrol, per shift, it still would not help. Crime is everywhere and it’s even directed to LEO’s.
    If it concerns you, contribute, and apply for the Department. If not, keep you stupid mouth shut.

    Atmore was once a quaint, small town. The police department better hammer down before the town goes full Chicago.
