Every police force has some difficulty getting and keeping qualified and well educated officers. I could just compare the situation to any business - maybe a teacher's position would be fair comparison. Just because people take on the job and the responsibilities doesn't mean they are exceptional. Not at all. Obvious.

Our ACCPD is no exception. But some just do the job in a more balanced way. I have seen Saulters cheerfully building community relations and communicating with people in his area. I don't know him personally but I have observed his fair and professional attitude on the job. I'd say more cops should follow the example of speaking softly while carrying the big stick.
