San Diego Police fight political movement to limit their authority –

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The San Diego police have a new battle in their hands.

Not only are they working to keep San Diego safe, with a staffed section, a small political movement in San Diego City Hall is trying to handcuff officers from doing their job.

Currently, the SDPD has fewer officers than any other major city in the country.

KUSI’s Dan Plante spoke with San Diego Police Association President Jared Wilson, who explained what they were dealing with.

Various crime rates are skyrocketing, but politicians are still working to regulate the SDPD.

The proposed “Protection Law” would allow officers to issue tickets to individuals only for the specific offense for which they were withdrawn. For example, if you are caught for a broken backlight, you can not be arrested for “ghost weapon” or possession of illegal drugs.

SDPOA President Jared Wilson says the Protection Act “does everything but protect people in San Diego.”
