More Officers Resign from San Jose Police Department due to Changes

        Four police officers announced this week they plan to turn in their badges and leave the department. Many more are expected to follow this suit. The City of San Jose’s department of retirement services released a memo stating, “186 San Jose police officers will be eligible for retirement in the next two years…” This can potentially cut the police force to unprecedented and have alarming low staffing levels. The police union said more than 25 officers have resigned from the department this year. The controversial Measure B pension reform measure that was approved by voters in 2012, calls for city workers to contribute 16 percent more of their pay to retirement costs beginning next year. Mayor Reed called the departures of SJPD officers, a Scare Tactic. Can residents of San Jose really think this is a Scare Tactic??? I highly doubt that, residents need to pay attention to the current departing officers already in San Jose. They've delivered a clear message that's easy to understand.
Our community, neighborhoods and residents are the ones who suffer most with the consequences of reduced public safety. As a community outreach director for the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 52, I ask myself and the community, "What would you do if you were an San Jose Police Officer?"
"Unfortunately, it's not shocking, but it's very disturbing," city councilman Ash Kalra said. "I think it's something all residents of San Jose should know about."

I agree with Councilman Ash Kalra, we do need to better understand what is going on and how this is going to effect San Jose if we are to loose more officers. The battle between city hall and the police union will continue but we as voters can make a change hoping to improve the way our city issues are being handled. We can’t loose more officers and we need to find away to keep the ones we do have. This by far is not a scare tactic and we need to improve the quality of life for or City and the ones that serve our community.  How many more officers turning in their badges will it take for the voters to wake up and see this is not a scare tactic?

Very valid concerns and I am in 100% agreement. I was really disappointed at the final mayoral race results and frankly very concerned for the future of this city as it will continue to go in the same direction even under the new leadership. Thank you for your efforts and advocacy. Its truly appreciated.
