OK, Columbus has about 1800 officers, but ... they are the only game in town for the City of Columbus - so you have to compare apples to apples - Louisville Metro isn't .... We also have Shively, J-town, St. Matthews, Graymoor- Devondale, Strathmoor Village, Audubon Park, Anchorage, Prospect, Indian Hills, and of course, the Sheriff's Office. Those numbers change the mix a bit.

Also, only Commanders and above get true take home cars - detectives and such, with assigned cars, can drive them, and park them, to the nearest public facility near their home. He said two use his station parking lot for that purpose. They can live in Columbus, the county it is in, or an adjacent county.
