The Hummel Report - 8.4.11 Details, Details...
Rhode Island taxpayers spend millions of dollars every year for police officers to work overtime details at construction sites.
This week, a Jamestown man questions whether taxpayers are getting their money's worth - and if civilian flaggers should be doing the same job.
Jim Hummel speaks with a retired police chief who now trains officers for details and defends their presence at construction jobs.
The Hummel Report is a non-profit 501(c) organization dedicated to exposing waste and corruption for the people of Rhode Island. Its investigative reports will combine with news and public information to offer multimedia news reports.

Maybe the cop on the bridge is taking a break? Maybe the since it is narrow and there is no where to stand he is in the car. The lights are a deterrent so assholes like you don't drive into the work crew, the hole, etc. Yeah maybe as flagger should be there and no cop, maybe you'll drive off the bridge FOUR EYED GOOF WANNA BE SECURITY GUARD HAHAHAHA

Hey Hummel, did you ask how much each city and town receives for usage of the police cruiser on details, probably thousands of dollars, which saves tax payers money. Private vendors pay for details and cruiser fees, or reimburse the city. That four eyed goof is just jealous he couldn't even become a security guard.

Keep at it Jim!
There were TWO police officers yesterday in Coventry on Rt. 3 standing there!
Nice to see our tax dollars being put to good use. <sarcasm>
