That shortage, as Supervisor Joel Anderson shared, has San Diegans worried about their safety.

"We did a quick poll in our district, over 700 people responded and 99% of them said they were deeply concerned," shared the District 2 representative. "They wanted to know if when they went to bed at night, they would wake up safely in the morning."

Anderson explained during the meeting that it is the Sheriff's Department's responsibility to provide regional mutual aid to cities in need. The San Diego Police Officers Association says this plan feels like someone hears their pleas.
