      Are you serious?? What's gonna happen when we eventually get down to 500 cops (and we all knows it's going to happen) to police over 1 million people. This situation is going bad fast.

            Rumor is that officers with up to six years on are looking at layoffs. It has to be strictly on seniority. And that means that a number of sergeants will backfill to being officers.

              I've heard 46 Sergeants and 1 LT are/were looking at demotions. This could have been if the POA did not accept the 10% cut they accepted this afternoon. However even with the recent concession they are still facing upwards of 100 layoffs. SJPD is experiencing significant changes right now...beginning with the consolidation/elimination of VCET into METRO, the K9 program being completely restructured, MERGE losing one of two teams to another division, whole patrol teams consisting of officers facing impending lay offs and all of this with summer rounding the corner...Violent crime is already on the rise and the Mercury Pravda has reported that SJ is on pace to triple the amount of 187's from last year...All of this with a City Manager, Mayor and Council that has yet offered to take a pay cut...I hope the best for the men and women of the SJPD.

                Cutting VCET, MERGE and K9 is probably the worst mistake ever made in the history of SJPD. Even coppers in other counties know how good and effective those teams are, and how badly they are needed with what is going on in San Jo.

                  I think the fact that they cut the Gang Investigations unit in half and combined it with VCET started the path that the City is on right now.

                  Their tentative contract has some serious changes in store for them.

                  In fact, we started accepting Lateral Applications just last week. The application period will close 06/09/2011. I have tried to get the word out through my contacts, but if you guys know anyone on SJPD and they are interested in the SO...
