L.A. Mayor: 911 Call Center Concerns Must Be Addressed
Los Angeles city officials must address concerns about public safety under proposed staffing changes at the Fire Department before further action is taken on the proposal, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa (D) said Tuesday after a meeting with officials to discuss the plan. The plan calls for shifting dispatchers from 24-hour shifts to regular eight-hour workdays, which could save the city $3.2 million annually.
