- Maybe the Chief Hogle and Deputy Chief Sharkey should think of putting the marine patrol unit to better use? There is a boat that is used to patrol around the island for reasons other than just fishery inspections and boating violations correct? Maybe if they put this unit to good use and had it patrol around the island past the hours of 3:30 in the afternoon, it could be effective in deterring crime if they suspect the perpetrators could be reaching the homes by boat.
It may also be useful for Chief Hogle to consider having a more proactive police department rather than such a reactive department. If there is a "crime wave" on Longboat Key, then the criminals know that the island it not only lax in it's street patrol efforts, but they are also well aware that there is absolutely no patrol on the water after certain hours as well. No offense, but when almost your entire department is made up of "retirees", do you really think they are interested in proactively protecting Longboat Key or just earning an extra paycheck?
