Part of the way our police department people are trying to justify their $287 million portion of the bond being considered is that they will try to get 60% of their sworn officers assigned to patrol duty.
Evidently they spend the rest of their time doing administrative work.
The 60% number comes from a national organization that recommends that level for larger police departments.
It seems that El Paso is below that number and if we give them a lot of money they will somehow come up to standard.
We deserve better
