Red Flags: Changing police deployment or outright elimination of jobs
As the economy tanks, and as community money is improperly invested and as shortfalls occur due to high unemployment and lower property values, then layoffs will happen in government services. If they're laying off police or eliminating their positions, they have to look to alternatives and that might mean moving them from city services to country services or simply to eliminate positions. You have to wonder at the wisdom of this, for this could create very volatile situations with crime.
No police force can anticipate crimes, only rarely help as they occur in-progress, but mostly visit after a crime has happened. So imagine as bad as that is, but having less response, maybe for a long time, way after the event occurs?
