Not always do we see the bad guys. We don’t always catch the criminals in the act. Sometimes witnesses and the general public ignore things because they don’t want to get involved. I really think I have found the perfect tool to take care of these issues. It is available 24/7 and might go unnoticed by some people. I’m warning the criminals to beware and look out because there is a new deputy perched out watching you night and day 24/7. He is kind of quiet and he doesn’t talk much. Don’t be offended at his quiet demeanor. Just wave and say hello if you notice him as you drive by!!!
