Thursday, July 20, 2006 | Re: “Police Plan Postponed.” I have been following this SDPD staffing and exodus problem for some time now and I am very disappointed by the lack of focus and commitment being dedicated to this crisis. Where is the leadership needed to solve this problem?
This is a serious problem that has the potential to get people hurt or worst yet killed, unless we get ahead of this now. We are fortunate to have the most professional and best run police department in the nation. Our officers work hard keeping a city this size safe with a force this small. Above it all, few people have the courage to face the daily danger and abuse these professionals face everyday.
Our officers deserve the best pay and best logistical and resource support we can give them. Stop playing games and make public safety and the salaries of our police officers a priority.
