Suggestions toward solving the problem

Major Stevens explains that SPD has a 'repeat offender program' and for the people who end up on that list "It's kind'a like being on the FBI's Most Wanted List. We notice that these people pop up and pop up and pop up - and we make an effort to catch those people." You want to catch them, you don't want to move them to another spot (this is repeated by several SPD officers).

Someone suggests a citizens police academy similar to one in King County. The Spokane citizens police academy was eliminated due to budget cuts about two years ago. The academy in Spokane was more informational, where the one in King County gives citizens an opportunity to ride along with officers and be more hands on.
