Re: First Thief Experience

Update to my story:

Turns out the owner of the shrimp boat that I suspected the would be dinghy thief came from has his boat here in the marina. He hadn't heard the story and stopped by yesterday after he heard about the whole thing. He says the only one on the boat was the captain and that he had definitely made the "raft" etc. the guy was on that tried to steal our dinghy. In talking with him there were some other shady things about this captain including a "grounding" that was blamed on the anchor rode breaking, but which looked like it had been cut to cover the "story" (cost the owner $135k).

So the owner said "that's it, I'm going down to meet the boat and fire that captain"

Don't blow air up my rear, be useful and blow it at the sails!

I hope that you can somehow build better relations with your enforcement guys and gals.
Our guys actively promote having an interested public watch out for indents and help them respond to 'stuff'.
Florida, with it's lack of income tax, is fairly short on resources, so there won't be much in the way of public relations work. Only place that might happen is someplace with very high property values as the property taxes are there main revenue stream. Of course this is also why you get a ticket in Florida for failure to use turn signals when changing lanes on an empty highway, an attempt to garner income.
