Position Papers
As national and local incidents involving law enforcement continue to expose questionable police practices and increase public scrutiny, we must emphasize the need for police officer accountability and accreditation.
Projected Employee Wages & Benefits
Monterey County, like the rest of the state, is finding it increasingly difficult to attract quality police recruits. If we are to stay competitive in the job market we must be prepared to find ways to attract the best applicants.
