Illegal drugs have led to a dramatic increase in criminal activity.  This is true for most surrounding counties as well.  Yet, our officers make far below the hourly rates of every other county that surrounds Decatur.  We must find a way to properly compensate our officers who place themselves in danger to protect us and our properties.
