Statement from Councilman Sal DiCiccio - Phoenix Police Are Grossly Understaffed Statement from Councilman Sal DiCiccio - Phoenix Police Are Grossly Understaffed <div class="ExternalClassD937E163AA0145349BD3E367EAD224A1"><p>"Think we have enough police officers on our streets in Phoenix? Think again.</p><p>For years the council has been underfunding and understaffing our police department in order to make room for their senseless pet projects like light rail expansion. They throw taxpayer money out the window when it should be dedicated to critical services like protecting our citizens. Even with our current hiring, we will be over 150 officers short of where we were before the recession, and a THOUSAND OFFICERS SHORT of where we need to be now with our continued population growth.</p><p>This has gone on too long and the people of Phoenix deserve to know their police have the resources they need to keep them safe. Fund our police NOW."</p><p>-- Phoenix District 6 Councilmember Sal DiCiccio<br></p></div>4/17/2018 7:00:00 AMNick Valenzuela602-495-5405
