Georgetown police officers seem to be at the end of their rope.
They made that very clear to the city council Monday, during a special sound off session.

Representatives with the Fraternal Order of Police, officers, and citizens made it clear that the Georgetown Police Officers are feeling spread too thin. The department claims it's understaffed by more than 20 officers. Some are also upset about their benefits decreasing in quality, losing their anniversary raises, as well as their uniform allowances. The officers also claim they're the lowest paid officers in Kentucky for the size of their deparment.

F.O.P officials say, if things don't get bettter--Georgetown will soon start losing officers.
