I haven't heard about that, although I heard about lay offs.

I find it odd that layoffs are often seen as preferable to pay cuts.

We didn't take a pay cut per se but, what we (and our non-sworn personnel) did was defer our contract raises for the next year. There is still the possibility of lay-offs, furloughs or reduced work week options for the county. I hope it doesn't get that bad but if they offered me a golden handshake I'd probably be gone!!

Shouldn't be necessary with sworn personnel. I am pretty sure most of the guys near retirement might just thrown in the towel anyway and if you put in a hiring/promotion freeze there would be a shortage of personnel fairly quickly.

SDPD took a 6% pay cut on July 1 and the City cut future retirement benefits for all employees. 150-160 sworn retired the last two weeks of June to keep the old retirement benefits. The City is is already talking about a bigger cut again next year.
SDPD is budgeted for 2132 sworn officers and is now down to about 1800. With light duty and deployed (military) officers figured in, there are less than 1700 (probably closer to 1600) working the Cities 10 divisions. Staffing is...shall we say...poor.

A modest pay cut is always better than a complete job loss. Those like me who chose to move to the private sector any number of years ago for siginifcantly higher pay (at the time) can attest to that.

Moving forward, I would expect you will see retirement programs really start getting rolled back. 3% @ 50 sounds great right up until a city has to pay the huge extra, and largely unfunded, mandates. God bless those who've got the years in and can get out on the bigger benefit. Those who follow are not going to have it nearly as good, I think.

if its between furloughs and pay cuts, i'll take the furloughs. they seem to be more temporary then pay cuts. and with pay cuts they get more for less. if i am going to be paid less i'd rather be fishing... I mean shooting, i dont fish.

I anticipate 3% at 50 going away for the future new hires. There will likely be a tiered system where those who currently have it will keep it, but those hired after xx/xx/xx will have a different retirement formula.

I believe you are correct. The problem being that there are fewer and fewer qualified applicants even now with the better benefits. With lowered/reduced benefits, many agencies will be forced to lower there hiring standards to get the numbers of officers they need. That is a slippery slope to a place I don't want to go.

Absolutely correct. It just seems the overall generational issues in addition to the California publics mentality toward LE have us scrambling to find qualified applicants as it is. If there were to be a decrease in the retirement benefit that would add even more problems for recruitment. IMO, we are already standing on the slippery slope you speak of. Glad I only have 2.5 years left.

there are thousands of qualified people getting ready to leave the military after their tours in Iraq Afghanistan. any pay or benefits the PDs offer would be better than what they are getting now.

Sac County...220 deputies to be laid off...they put out 209 as official but I was told in briefing by the boss that it will be 220 now. Plus not taking the raise. I'll be one of the lucky folks who gets rolled back from patrol to custody to fill that vacant spot.

Sorry to hear of Sac Counties problems. I must say tho, getting rolled back to custody is certainly better than the unemployement line. Wish you luck and hope it all works out the best for you.

In cases like these I feel so lucky. I sat down and figured out my dept seniority last week and found they could cut 98% of the department and I'd still have a job. Might be back on patrol or turning keys but like I said, beats the alternative. Our county has offered a golden handshake to the non-sworn employees but nothing our way as of yet.

If the retirement system goes away they are going to have to front a much larger portion of cash to get decent new hires.

Ya know, I'm sitting here sipping on a Margarita, and smoking a Cohiba right now. My 3% at 30 check for 30 years came in the mail a couple of days ago.
Discounting round-trip fuel, dry cleaning, meals, etc., I'm making more to not work that I did when I was busting my balls. I sincerely hope all you new guys have good careers. I'm glad I'm finished. Cheers!

Despite our recent misfortune of layoffs, I myself am very optimistic! I don't get to work for the dept. I wanted to, but I wont sit in a jail for 10 years before I go to patrol either!

Default Cuts

I'm retiring this year & I tell the younger guys that "nothing personal", but I hope my dept does not cut pay. It affects my retirement. If it came to furloughs or lay offs.....I again told them...."its not personal, but business for me". Its a tough call either way.

I agree with you! Look at what happened to Sac County....They voted to postpone cola's and step raises and guess what....It ended up costing more jobs in the long run, along with losing everything else. It was sad the vote passed with a 90% approval rating, and the 10% of us were chastised for saying it would cost more jobs in the long run.

Funny thing is, some people STILL don't even realize the implications and future impact the vote will have. Just sad.

Parole agents just took, effectively, a 15% pay cut. Santa Cruz PD just demoted a Sgt. to officer, and they may lay off officers.

I'm surprised no cop bashers have come in and said their $0.02.

Back to the topic... We were lucky our PD has no plans to layoff/furlough/cut pay for any personnel. We were even lucky to keep a pay increase for this year based upon our contract a couple years ago. Unfortunately, the OT well is now dry. Sometimes it's good to be a small agency.

I think Gilroy laid off a few officers and Morgan Hill closed up their vacant slots and renegotiated future pay increases. I was laid off (non-sworn).

The contract city I am working for has been fiscally conservative over the last few years and they made just minor reductions to our budget for this year. In contrast, the unincorperated stations in the county as well as some not-so-fiscally conservative contract city stations have taken a HUGE hit. I keep telling these kids here that they just don't know how lucky they are.

I keep hoping the county will offer sworn a 2 year golden handshake and that would put me almost at max. I'd have two words for them if they did that....seeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee ya!!!!!

Same here. I told the city manager I was willing to take a 17-year handshake for the good of the city. He declined. Strange.

It seems like state law enforcement officers took a hard hit due to the budget crisis. I know they're getting 2-3 furlough days. Is CHP getting a pay cut or furlough days? What about CA DOJ officers? Just curious...

I work with many state and local guys, and it is getting worse by the minute. A lot are scrounging for overtime that is pretty non-existant right now except for when Uncle Sugar funds the projects such as PSN or HIDTA Money.

...3 furlough days. Comes out to, I believe, 14.23% pay cut. Good chunk of money I was kind of counting on.

Stockton PD gave a two year golden handshake and 21 officers took the deal thus saving 21 new officers from getting laid off. Nice deal.

They have talked about a GHS here but I think what they may be concerned with is the amount of people who would leave. We are a large dept (about 1800 sworn) and even if only 5% left that is still 90 positions that would be vacant. I would guess they would have to limit it to those of us over 50 and in excess of XX years of service. I think they would have to survey those of us with 25+ first to gauge interest.

Do you think you can have them call my agency so we don't lose 220 cops?? It's dissapointing to know my former trainees that went back to corrections will not be able to share a beat with me when they rotate.

wow, that is just plain halirious. there is no mentioning of your criminal history, education level, job experience, physical fitness level, English proficiency or age but just "straight, white male", come on man, if you add good looking in front of your criteria I think you'll get a job any where.

Like I said before.....Its more than 220....Us On-Calls work full time too! Its closer to 350 "full time" employees and 150 part timers.

That being said, you and I both know this is not about having or not having money. Its politics. When all the "missing" tax revenue comes in the county wont give it back to the department, instead they will triple it by putting it in social programs.

Falling property tax is a crock of ****! When a home forecloses the bank still has to pay the taxes on it!
