Re "Roseville lays down law on police union" (Editorials, May 31): I am a three-year Roseville police officer and a resident of Roseville. Along with the other 102 police officers who work to protect the community, I am disappointed in the City Council's decision to impose a contract on us, cutting our take home pay by $400 to $600 per month.
This pay cut will affect my family and will have a drastic effect on Roseville's ability to retain and hire qualified and experienced police officers. We work hard for the citizens of Roseville. The manner in which the City Council imposed on its police officers was especially hurtful -- in a last minute meeting, noticed just 24 -hours ahead of time, scheduled at 11 a.m. when most citizens would not be able to attend. While the City Council may say public safety is a priority, its actions clearly prove otherwise.
