association manpower problems still plague police comp aged 1972 changed the men in the department More than the Public gave this explanation during the scandal supervisors were blamed for not knowing what officers under them were doing and for not reporting them in fear of being blamed the supervisors Are now Overly cautious now they report even the smallest thing up the Chain of command and recommend harsh punishment everybody makes Small mistakes occasionally because of this an officer not Only has to contend with the dangers of the profession he has to keep looking Over his shoulder to make sure a supervisor is not writing him up for something he concluded another officer fixed most of the blame on the City administration the chief Pritchett has tried to get More Money for salary but has been turned Down he said he also is turned Down when he asks for Money for equipment we get new cars but some of the equipment on them and in them is 15 to 20 years old the same officer also complained about not getting replacements for old uniforms he said they have to be patched and mended but replaced Only when they Are so Sloppy that people Start talking about Pritchett said that the City loses More Money when a Man just out of training leaves than it would by increasing his salary to persuade him to stay according to Pritchett the City pays a recruit a salary for almost a year supplies him equipment and pays the salary of men to teach him before the City realizes any Benefit from him if a Man is Good enough to leave and go to another department he is Good enough to stay Here Pritchett said none of the six former officers contacted is presently in Law enforcement one of the former officers contacted said he could not see Why the City would pay Over to the International Assn of chiefs of police to make a study to see How the department could be improved and then not make any Money available so that the suggested changes could be made Pritchett said he had put As Many of the lamps recommendations into effect As he could but has been restricted to those not costing additional Money he said he had asked for Money to implement More of the suggestions but that the requests were Cut from the budget Pritchett said that the department is doing its Job with the shortage of Man Power but that it sometimes becomes difficult when the recruits in training instructors at the Academy supervisors recruiters planners crime prevention personnel and others Are taken from the 124man uniform Force Only about 80 officers remain to enforce the Laws an officers
