school resource officers

On Tuesday, June 2, the City Council will vote to approve the Alameda Police Department’s (APD) budget. Approval would include cutting funding for high school resource officers. Mayor Trish Spencer has said at previous city council meetings regarding the city’s budget that there is a projected 1.4 percent deficit for the 2016-2017 fiscal year.

For APD Chief Paul Rolleri, this 1.4 percent cut from his department proposed by Spencer would have to come from his officers stationed at Alameda and Encinal high schools.
