Is there anything you have ever wanted to know from ? Well, this is your chance to ask.
Patch has always strived to bring its readers all types of information and keep them updated on what is happening in their communities. It is with that in mind that we bring you our newest column, “Ask Campbell PD.” We will be teaming up with the Campbell Police Department to answer your questions.
Whether you have a question about certain laws and how they might affect you, your family or friends or how to stay safe in certain situations, we want you to ask them. Every week we will run two-three questions and answers. To submit a question, email firstname.lastname@example.org or add it in the comments section below.
This week's questions from Campbell Patch readers were answered by Campbell Police Captain Charley Adams.
Now that San Jose Police Department has hiring ads on the radio after layoffs, cuts and being severely short-staffed, will Campbell hire more officers as well?
The Campbell Police Department is currently at full staffing. We are not creating new positions and will hire new employees as openings become available.
We have been operating with the same staffing numbers for several years and feel we offer excellent public safety services while maintaining fiscally responsible wage and benefit opportunities for our employees. If we believe we have need of additional officers, the Chief would make that request during the budget planning cycle which normally begins in February.
