  1. I reported a domestic dispute Thursday morning. It was a possible hostage situation as well! The local police arrived after the female escaped and left the premises. They showed Absolutely no concerns and filled No report… Whenever the office manager contacted them, nobody had any details about the incident. I gave detailed information about what I saw to one of the officer’s. It’s because of where I live that they don’t care. I care about my neighbors, why don’t the one’s who are sworn to “serve and protect” care?!
