OPD Chief Tim Burton said his department continues investigatory work with federal and other agencies to crack down on distribution.
"We've stepped up our street enforcement through patrol, which is reflected in some of the numbers, I think," Burton said. If not for the shortage of officers throughout the department, Burton said he would like to boost the number of narcotics officers, as would most law enforcement agencies. Even so, the supply of drugs coming from Mexico creates unique problems for local police. "It becomes very problematic for us because the influx of supply is unmanageable from a local perspective," Burton said.

OPD Police Chief Timothy Burton said the Police Department's staffing fluctuation in 2011 was partially due to workers seeking higher wages.
"It began with the escalation of the local economy," Burton said. "It becomes attractive for some folks to seek employment elsewhere because of the monetary compensation they can receive." Of the 16 vacancies in Burton's department, five are sworn in positions and the rest are civilian positions such as crime scene technicians, animal control and clerks. Burton said it's easy for sworn in officers to get recruited to the oil industry, because they have been "prescreened." "They're reliable, high trained and capable personnel," Burton said. "So if the (oil) industry can attract them away from us, they have folks prepped and quickly trained for whatever capacities they've hire you for." Burton said with the high degree of training required at the Police Department, vacancies do have an effect on services. However, he said that it's "difficult to categorize exact impacts" in the department. "Even fully staffed, we try to run at the most efficient level possible. Any reduction has some marginal effect," Burton said. Burton said the OPD does have pending hires being screened. Positions can be filled rapidly, but training periods for new staff do affect the time when they can start work, Burton said. "As we speak, any time we have vacancies, we're engaged in a hiring process," Burton said.
