Northbridge Police were asked to send an officer, but reported they would not be doing so “due to staffing issues.” - say what?

The man was in the hospital for what I think is a mental evaluation, and when he started acting up and making threats, Milford police were called. The local police asked Northbridge to send an officer, to stand by with him while the hospital decided what to do with him, because Northbridge had written the Section 12 for him, but that department told dispatch they couldn't because of "staffing issues." So, in short, because the hospital is in Milford, the local police have to maintain order there. It seems like, lately, there have been a lot of these "unruly patient" calls.

That makes more sense. For some reason when I read it I thought that they wanted the Northbridge police to assist with stopping the gang members from leaving Northbridge.
