Santa Barbara Foot Patrol Increase

DURING LEAN BUDGET TIMES, THE POLICE DEPARTMENT DIDN'T ALWAYS HAVE THE STAFF TO WALK UP AND DOWN THE BUSINESS AREA ON FOOT. NOW, IT'S BECOMING A REGULAR ASSIGNMENT ALONG WITH THE COMMUNITY LIASONS - A CITIZEN PATROL THROUGH THE POLICE DEPARTMENT, AND TOGETHER IT'S CHANGED THE LOOK OF STATE STREET.
