THE FACTS: Even
when caught in the Measure U deception, the City of
Sacramento still refuses to consider the Sacramento Police
Department an ESSENTIAL SERVICE for the sake of restoring
deep cuts over the past five years!
"The Approved Budget for the Police
Department totals $122.4 million from all funding sources
and supports 939.96 full time equivalent (FTE) positions
(677.0 sworn and 262.96 civilian). This budget includes
reductions necessary to balance the budget, technical
adjustments, and Measure U funding."
FACTS: Even when the City of Sacramento "discovered"
available funds in the amount of $9.35 MILLION, did they
restore ANY of the 167 positions cut in 2011 from the
Sacramento Police Department?
WHAT FACTS? Let the games begin with
Measure U restoration of essential services. Even with

Police Department as we became the second most violent city
in California and began closing in on becoming #1?
Our police are worth 30 cents on the

The City Council has approved spending
$258 million in public money, much of it future parking
revenues, to help build the $448 million arena.
In his own words, when asked, it
wasn't the visitors to our city that may be a problem but
the thugs that live in Sacramento police cannot control with
their limited resources.
How soon we forget the Mayor, City Manager and City Council
gutted the Sacramento Police Department over the last three
budgets. They did not want to hear from citizens or the many
representing the rank of file of SPD so they cut public
comments from three minutes to two!

LOOKING BACK: Pending Public
Records Act requests on Staffing
We used to get this report
on a regular basis along with ABs, the Beat Sheets and
District Rosters. When this report disclosed the public and
the media were being mislead on the number of unfilled
vacancies, it ended.
