78 San Jose Officers Reassigned to Patrol To Reduce Emergency Call Response Times
Last Friday, 78 officers from various units of the San Jose Police Department were temporarily assigned to patrol duty to reduce emergency call response times and supplement officers. San Jose Police Department spokesman Albert Morales said the temporary shift of duties is needed as the department continues to lose officers in its ranks. In February, a new wave of officers is expected to join the department.
