Oakland PD Adds 47 Patrol Officers

April 07, 2014  | 

Nearly four dozen new police officers will soon start walking their beats on the Oakland streets, as the California city’s embattled department welcomes its largest-ever class of recruits to graduate from its police academy, the Associated Press reports.

The 47 new police officers will bring the department’s ranks to 659, a significant bump but still below what local officials say is needed in the violence-plagued, cash-strapped port city.

Thats the largest class thy ever had? No wonder the crime rate there is out of control. Good luck brothers, being a cop in CA (land of liberals,fruits and nuts and illegals) is a lost battle. Move EAST young Police Officer, let them suffer the world that the liberals have made for themselves. You can thank your "forever" Democrat" State Legislature for the mess your entire state is in!

Get your training down, FTO behind you, and transfer out here to the mid-west area cities, 55,000, 500,000 to 2.4 mill. in major K-City(ies). Pays very good, Benefits Great, and you can do your job completely.

Oakland? I'd rather piss broken glass. You'll do great until you try to do your job then those liberal bastages will leave you hanging. I'd follow the previous advice and get out as soon as feasible.

I have a friend who lives in Oakland, he says that he lives in the good part of the city because where he lives he can barley hear the "gun shots".
