If you are a Bend Police officer, chances are you are very busy these days. Police Chief Sandy Baxter says the Department is down about three officers but their workload has sky rocketed. “But then we are dealing with the increased number of calls. We are over about 4000 calls above what we were last year. Besides just those numbers, the types of calls that we are responding to take much more time.” Baxter is talking about the homocide calls of the last year. She says those calls are particularly taxing on the detectives.  Baxter is putting together a Department budget for the coming year and will have the numbers for the City Council by the end of May.    She realizes the City is under budget constraints but the Department is being asked to do a tremendous amount of work with a limited staff.
