Increased security as commission

To the Editor:
Questions concerning the Polk Country commissioner’s security detail. 
Just a metal detector and TWO officers?
No police dog?
Is that enough to allow you to feel secure?
If my pocket knife sets off the metal detector will they take me into custody?
How about a nail clipper?
If I’m carrying a bottle of water with more than 3-ounce of liquid will I have pour it out?
Must I remove my shoes?
Should I be prepared for a friendly TSA-type pat down?
Who decides when a citizen’s comment or voice level is threatening and requires police action?
If you are afraid of the people you were elected to serve why did you run for office in the first place?
