A March 2018 indeed.com review of the College Station Police Department by a reviewer who claims to currently be employed as an officer with the department adds credibility to concerns that the department is short-staffed:
High Call Volume, Short Staffed
Police Officer (Current Employee) – College Station, TX – March 5, 2018
