American Dollars

Even a small police department can have a budget of millions of dollars.  All those dollars are paid by American taxpayers.  I think we have an obligation to insure that all of those dollars are spent on products made here in America.

American jobs are on the line every day.  International competition is fierce and many millions of jobs have gone overseas to Communist China, and even Communist Vietnam.  I was distressed a couple years ago to see that my agency had purchased uniforms made in Vietnam.  This agency even had a few Vietnam era vets!

When we buy cars, trucks, motorcycles, bicycles and other vehicles, buy ones made in America.  I know the selection may not be as large as you would like if you only buy American, but part of the reason the selection is so small is that others before you did not buy American motorcycles, American cars, or American guns.  Keep our taxpayer dollars here in America, that's what the SGT Says.
