In Getting officers out on the street we presented a slide where our police department told us that they plan to get 60% of their officers out in the field.
Later in the presentation they show this slide:
Five years into the program they plan to have 751 officers in the patrol divisions and 702 non-patrol officers.
That comes to 1,453 officers, which means they want to have 51.6% of their officers out in the field, not the 60% that they want us to believe they will achieve if we give them the $286 million that they want.
We deserve better
