Cops As Librarians?

Arriving in the Resort Area early for this afternoon's RAC meeting, I went into the Oceanfront Library. A VBPD policewoman had security duty...and was behind the desk helping with librarian duties.

That raises some obvious questions. Are we so short library help that security has to be utilized in such a manner? With contracted security cheaper, why is VBPD providing library security? Why is a police officer pulling library duty when we need more cops on the street? With City Budget time just around the corner, I'd like to know.

When the librarian says, "Shhh" she means it.
