6:03 pm
marin, san francisco down another level but statewide the drought is once again getting worse. here's the problem. look at the numbers for january. average rainfall for january is.5". it is historically our second wettest month. two years ago we got 10% of that. last year, we got just a few drips of rainfall which is right now at least the driest january on record until maybe this year where it has not rained yet and tomorrow we are more than halfway through the month and just looking at how close the rain is getting but close does not end the drought, look at all the rainfall that's going to fall between now and saturday morning, 4 inches of rain in the pacific northwest but none in the bay area. like a wall has been put in the atmosphere stopping at ukiah and mendocino county counties. so close but our drought continues and the update is at least in the central valley it is now once again getting worse. back to you. the december storms have helped a bit. the state is upping its water deliveries by 5% to public

6:06 pm
services places like that will now be shifting to the street. now one former police chief here in san jose is speaking out against the city policy that enabled this to happen. the san jose police department department's new staffing plan takes every available officer out from behind a desk and puts him on the street. this memo from chief shows how officers from all different departments will join robbery, homicide, and missing persons detectives and sergeants on basic patrol duties starting next month. >> to see it gutted is heart- wrenching. >> reporter: that's former police chief rob davis who was san jose's top cop for 7 years and spent 30 years with the department. he said there was much more backing of the police department from elected leaders during his time when san jose was also known as the safest big city in america. he said dismantling units to meet patrol units is only a
6:07 pm
short-term gain. >> chief esquivel and the staff will put people on the street to answer 911 calls but there's a huge long-term loss in the fact that the very thing that made san jose police department so effective is the pro-active activity to prevent crime from happening is going to be lost. >> reporter: davis said things will only get worse under measure b because officers can move to other departments and start making more money immediately. he doesn't blame chief esquivel for making the hard and unpopular choices. >> chief esquivel is between a rock and a hard spot. he hasn't created this situation. it's a political issue. he has a situation where he has had, what, you know, we have had 400 officers resign in the last four years. they have not been replaced. >> reporter: many more officers are scheduled to retire this year. in fact, it's getting to the point where the chp may be coming in to help patrol the streets of san jose. reporting live in san jose, len ramirez, kpix 5. >> and they tell us those cuts will take effect starting next month. san jose lost a legal round in its bid for the oakland a's.
