"Police Chief William Lansdowne said the department has tried to be more efficient. But he said years of budget cuts have brought the department to a tipping point."
And yet, the Policy Chief authorized expenditures of $2.4 million last year on the Occupy movement at Civic Center. Meanwhile, I worked in the area and saw dozens of officers standing around for months guarding peaceful protesters. This was certainly not a judicious use of police resources, contrary to the claims of Police Chief Landsdowne.
