On Thursday December 8th, members of the PLEA board met with City Manager Ed Zuercher. The meeting was cordial and PLEA let our concerns be known over the manpower crisis currently confronting the PD and also let him know what we saw as the necessary solutions to the problem. We have also reached out to Councilman Nowakowski who chairs the public safety subcommittee and are awaiting his response. Councilwoman Laura Pastor’s staff has reached out to PLEA. We are appreciative of this and are in the process of setting up a meeting with her. We will also be reaching out to other members of the council as well. We will keep the membership appraised of any developments as they occur.
