Subject: TOTO Units

Chief Hardiman:

I am contacting you regarding the TOTO situation. We had twelve of these units shipped in from Syren Industries, and already six of them are damaged—five beyond repair. Each of these units costs the department a small fortune. I was under the impression that the TOTOs would alleviate our burden of officer shortages, but that doesn’t appear to be the case. With the rate we’re going, we’ll soon need to hire an on-site mechanic direct from Syren just for the upkeep of these things.

Might I suggest employing these units more sparingly? One of the selling points for the TOTOs was that they could protect our officers—but from the reports I’m reading, it sounds like the officers spend half their time protecting the TOTOs! How are these things not bulletproof?!

The higher-ups are already looking for heads to roll regarding the purchase of the TOTOs—and it won’t be my neck on the chopping block.
