Chief Hardiman:

I understand your frustration regarding the downsizing of the Criminal Tech Division. I agree that three analysts are too few for a Department of this size but, at the moment, budgetary concerns have severely limited our options. I’ve spoken at length with the Budget and Planning Support Team, and they are currently looking into other possibilities. One solution might be to merge the Cyber Crimes and Criminal Tech divisions since they often work hand-in-hand on cases. Another alternative is to limit next quarter’s vehicle acquisition and scrap plans for a new patrol helicopter.
