Police union Vice President Steve McMillan said Mayor Jerry Sanders’ plan for recruiting new cops was “sound and encouraging,” but said that his platform for keeping current officers in San Diego falls short of the union’s expectations because it does not address pay issues rapidly enough.

“It in no way gives officers a reason to continue providing services to the citizens of San Diego,” McMillan told the City Council today.

The police union has had pay freezes imposed upon them for two straight years, a factor that has led to a departure of officers for other law enforcement agencies. Scroll down for more on Sanders’ presentation today.
