Like the oil patch boom in western North Dakota, Foxconn is going to have an impact on law enforcement in southeastern Wisconsin

Police departments brace for Foxconn impact. (Racine Journal Times, 7/5/2018)
Although the campus is located in Mount Pleasant, officials in neighboring communities like Sturtevant and the City of Racine are looking at their departments to see where improvements are needed. 
“We’re going to have to work together,” Racine Police Chief Art Howell said. “No one department is going to have all the resources to deal with the overall impact.” 
Local police department officials are optimistic that the Foxconn development can lower the unemployment rate in Racine County, which could result in lower crime rates.

You'd think that Scott Walker's generosity with taxpayer funds could extend to law enforcement.

Misplaced optimism?
