Its time to fix this

ElPasoSpeak - Fri, 09/21/2018 - 5:00am

The ongoing problem of excessive overtime at the police department is in the news again.  The KVIA published this piece  after this El Paso Times article came out

The KVIA piece points out the case of a sergeant that made over $60,000 per (each) year in overtime in both 2015 and 2016.

This is simply poor management.  The department has a lot of “brass” (lieutenants and above) on the payroll.  Either they are playing favorites, or they are not paying attention.

Most of us can understand the need for some overtime.  Unfortunately there are individuals that are gaming the system and their bosses are not stepping in.

We deserve better
