AMEN! Great article. I know, as a former teacher, there are many people working without proper pay. Not just police officers. The difference is, these officers are always in danger, running in while we all get to run away. I am so proud of our police officers. Thank you CPD.
Ron Littlefield is the worst thing for our city right now. Im not sure what he has against our police department, but he needs to start supporting the department or get out of office. He gives himself a raise, but cuts the officers' salary. How? There are no raises, he takes their cars away, and took away overtime pay. How selfish of him. But he does spend millions on putting statues downtown...hmmm...
"allGodschildren" you're an idiot. sorry, but i can't think of a better way to put it. you are uninformed, speak without any truth, are rude, ungrateful, and insensitive. You're the kind of person that doesn't deserve to have someone else (like a poice officer) risk their life for you.
This news is absolutely heartbreaking. Praying for the family of this officer. Also, praying for the other Chattanooga police officers that protect us on a daily basis. We enjoy our evenings, weekends, and holidays while they are out there (away from their families) working and putting their lives on the line for us.
Mayor...you need to give these officers what they deserve. I don't care if it's in "your budget" or not. We don't have enough officers out there protecting our city, or covering their fellow officers' backs.
I'm so proud of our officers doing their jobs without enough pay to provide for their families, and without the safety of enough backup officers. THANK YOU CPD!
