Explanation of above estimates (including long-range effect):


    It is impossible to predict the exact cost associated with this bill due to the varied circumstances which dictate when and how many troopers may be on call. In order to provide some reasonable estimate of the expected cost, we have applied the number of detachments without 24 hour coverage (57) to the number of hours per day (8) they are generally unstaffed. Again, based upon circumstances which change from week to week, and day to day, the number of detachments unstaffed for any portion of the day may vary and the number of hours that they may be unstaffed can vary greatly.
