Some Colorado sheriffs to cease regular patrols

By Howard Pankratz, Denver Post

The cost of fuel has become so prohibitive that El Paso County Sheriff Terry Maketa has asked his officers working the graveyard shift to stop routine patrols, shut their cars off and respond only to emergency calls.

"We have told them to cease all routine or random patrols - which means that residents won't see marked units driving through their neighborhoods being proactive," Maketa said. "We've essentially had to turn back to being reactive, primarily because the county doesn't have the revenue to keep our fleet being fueled."
