Number of Memphis PD Officers Out Sick Falls to 499

July 10, 2014  | 

The number of Memphis police officers out on sick leave continues to decline, reports the Commercial Appeal. The number fell to 499 Thursday afternoon, according to the Memphis Police Department, down from a high of 557 on Tuesday.

The number of officers out as part of a "blue flu" protesting benefits cuts now makes up 22.5 percent of the 2,218 officers employed by MPD.

Sixty-one firefighters were out sick as of Thursday morning.

I can't understand why an agency would want to cut benefits. That's like telling a employee you are not worth the cost we have been paying for you.
