BP: Patrolling for applicants: Law enforcement agencies statewide see a decrease in those applying for positions

Authorities on the subject say there are multiple possible causes for the decline, ranging from candidates going into the private field to them not wanting to deal with the increased scrutiny that law enforcement has seen.
