Q. On Sunday, May 10, the El Centro Police and Fire departments blocked off the streets of Imperial and Ocotillo and Aurora while they Tasered a woman in the parking lot of CVS Pharmacy.

I noticed a police unit from the city of Imperial assisting. Does that mean we do not have enough police officers on duty to safely handle a single individual, and if officers from Imperial are assisting the ECPD, who’s protecting the city of Imperial?

But if you need to make a police report, they rudely tell you that it’s just too bad because they have no officers available. That’s happened to me twice.
