5:32 am
some of the terms of the contract between his police officers and the city. now, the chief already has patrol officers working mandatory overtime and even then there are not enough officers on patrol. some officers have taken to sleeping in rvs on city property because the turn around they say is just not enough time to get home to some of the outlying area where's they live. now, look at this message sent to san jose police officers this saturday. swing shift, officers if you are off or would like to come in, please text. this is in addition to the day shift which was also 11 officers and four sergeants short, too. so this state of emergency would allow the chief to shift 47 officers to patrol all to the instead of asking them to volunteer. it would bypass the bidding that contract provision that would allow officers to choosen assignment other than patrol pop even then the department would still be understaffed. >> we're going to do everything we can to move regulatory obstacles or any other obstacle
5:33 am
to enable him to do what he needs to do. we all know this is just a band-aid and unless we get measure f approved in november by the voters, all we'll have is band-aid solutions. >> reporter: now, that measure is a ballot measure that would essentially undo almost all of the pension reform they approved years ago and put in place protections for officers injured on the job. that is something the may jr. and chiefs could help the department in the future with long term staffing problems in terms of recruitment and retention. but that remains to be seen whether or not the voters will go for that. in the meantime, this is a band-aid approach to the staffing issue. in san jose, kris sanchez, "today in the bay." >> certainly a critical problem for the city. kris, thank you. a developing story and this out of hayward. the people of hayward have a new leader running their police department today. you're looking at the city's police chief diane stuart who is on paid leave as hayward pd
5:34 am
