The GC just reorganized districts for better coverage. That was needed due to the continual vacancies caused by retirements.
No way the semi yearly classes of WCO's can keep up. And you want to double up on WCO's in a vehicle?
No way, and that by way of law, not the ability to fill the vacant ranks or retirements.
The GC has an authorized compliment of 135 WCO's statewide. Do the math, no way it can happen and the only ones that can increase that number are the same ones that refuse to properly fund the GC.
One thing affects the other, in this case, it just further complicates the matter.
Safety is paramount. The additions of the radio's and service rifles is a no brainer. As is the current practice, something else will need to slip on the priority list to get it done.
Is your position a short term gain - or a long term loss? Separate the issues.
