The San Diego Police Union is working on an ambitious goal to gain and retain low-cost day care for its officers' kids.

“We've been studying for about a year to see if this is something we could do," said San Diego Police Association President, Detective Jack Schaeffer

The average annual cost of infant care in California, according to the Economic Policy Institute, is more than $16,900. That’s a little more than $1,400 per month, NBC San Diego reports.

Schaeffer says their goal is to day care cost half as much for officers and make it available 20 hours a day, seven days a week.
