Interim Chief Logan has done a 180 after last week's press conference where he was parroting Bing's feelings about having 1,000 extra officers. Now Bing and Logan are all about new officers. They plan to have a new class as soon as possible this spring. A class is about 35 officers. And those officers playing penuckle in the back room will have to spend a few hours on the street now.

I suspect Bing put Logan up to his statement last week because he did not see the funding for more officers. When he realized how silly that position was he decided to push for more officers, but only in this limited way that won't cost much as attrition will eat up the fresh officers when they graduate.

Citizens are calling for a STRESS type police response. Chief Evans was close to delivering it and crime did start to go down before he got caught with his pants down.
