Police Recruiting

On behalf of LPNA President, Greg Peck:

On October 20, 2016, the San Jose Police Department presented its semi-annual Police Department Recruitment Activity Report to the City Council’s Public Safety, Finance, and Strategic Support Committee. In that memorandum, the Department committed to issue a memorandum related to post-November election recruiting efforts to the City Council.

On November 8, 2016, the voters of San Jose passed Measure F, San Jose’s Alternative Pension Reform Act. This offers an opportunity for a fresh start for the San Jose Police Departments recruiting efforts. 

Mayor Sam Liccardo, in his recent State of the City address mentioned that Police Recruits need to serve the city that paid for their education. And, this year’s Academy class is larger than has been in quite a while.
