police chief says they're struggling with, but emergency calls come in. so today, the chief asked for the city council to give them emergency authority to solve the problem. robert honda joins us now from city hall and the counsel is getting ready to vote on this any moment now. zpl that's right. the council is about to vote on this, but judging by what they have been say, looked like they were approved. >> san jose police chief eddie garcia is using statistics. he dupt have enough officers on patrol and can't make up for it anymore. the chief planned by other top cops asked for a determination of emergency to get around state law and give him the power to assign cops to patrol units. garcia said he needs to deploy 47 cops not to solve the
problem, but just to makeover time adjustments manageable. >> in order to keep my officers safe and reduce you know, quite frankly, some of the fatigue and also keep our community safe, that we needed to do this and needed to do this quickly. >> the chief got support from many residents who said they don't feel safe and an endorsement, the police union. >> what number of officers does our department have to reach before it is an emergency. >> they scoffed after a proposal to bring in chp officers. lori smith who coordinates responses, sent the city a letter calling the idea nonsensical. >> although they can come in an help us with some thing, they certainly cannot be expected to help us fill 348 shifts p per week because they have their own responsibilities. >> it appears it will be about a

could use millions of gallons in excess of what i was allowed and not be fined at all! so now every single water provider, whether a district or agency in the state, must develop and execute an excessive water use policy. each agency must have the policy ready to go by january 1st. now, another interesting component is that by establishing a policy, it subjects agencies to public records, so now anyone who wants to know who the hogs are, would be able to inquire and find out their names. >> beautiful weather here, but a different story in hawaii. madeleine now a category 3 storm is moving closer to the island. it's a little after 2:00 p.m. there and there is a hurricane warning. how damaging could this be? >> looks like a direct hit. they'll be spared at this point. not only madeleine, but we're
