The Russett Community Association, which represents about 10,000 residents in western Anne Arundel County, wants its own police officer. The community is covered by regular patrols from the county's Western District, and residents hire private security to patrol their suburban streets. But community leaders say they want an on-duty county police officer who will stay in their neighborhood and address their specific law enforcement needs. And they're willing to pay for it. "The idea is the officer can only leave if there is an officer down, or to get gas," said Timothy Reyburn, the president of the community association.
