One of our regular Eyes, told us of the following Facebook post by retired APD sergeant Dan Klein. As you know, Sgt. Klein is one of the few cop's cops out there and calls it exactly as he sees it. And we couldn't agree more. Thank you Sgt. Klein!
"For six years Richard Berry has turned his backs on APD officers. He
refused to honor the agreed upon APOA contract, he left chiefs in place
who were ethically challenged, he hired a chief who has no experience,
he allowed APD command staff to take money that was clearly meant for
the beat cops, he created hiring requirements that have failed in the
past, he removed the senior officer retention bonus plan and he refuses
to settle the 6 year contract dispute. 432 officers have
fled APD since this guy became mayor. Crime is way up. Yet the only
excuses Berry comes up with are "it's the legislature's fault" or "it's
PERA's fault". Never holding himself accountable for his destructive
mismanagement of APD.
The police department probably has less than 800
sworn officers and beat cops will tell you, the streets are dangerous
because there is no back up.
Berry turned his back on APD six years
ago, it's time to return the message."
