Desperate people do desperate things...Cranston Police need more officers on the road and not in managementin white shirts! The last I had heard was they were short officers because of budget cuts. We pay enough taxes for the "so called" great services we get...NOT. Glad my home is alarmed and so am I. I welcome anyone trying to violate myself family or property.
