Addressing Anticipated Shortages of Public Safety Officers in the San Diego Region
VOTE: 5-0 (PASS)
Regional law enforcement agencies, including the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department and the City of San Diego Police Department, are expected to face a shortage of sworn officers necessary to protect life and property in the next few years. Vaccine mandates at the City of San Diego could result in up to 160 officers being fired this year. This board letter directs the County to prepare for and appropriately address anticipated shortages in public safety personnel to keep our communities safe.
