he also says it would bring down the department's morale and potentially scare off recruits. now, sjpd went from 1400 cops nearly 10 years ago down to 900. it is in the process of hiring a couple of hundred more officers but that will take a while so the city council members say until then, why not get help from other agencies? >> we have 2300 miles of streets in san jose and there's no traffic enforcement so it's unsafe speeding near the hundreds of schools we have, churches, et cetera. >> reporter: all right. so the city council member says the money to pay for it would come from the nearly 200 openings that sjpd already has until those recruits are ready to deploy. so later today the chief is expected to bring his ideas why this is not a good idea to the city council member during a regular meeting at 1:30. maria medina, kpix 5. live at

reasons why including labor contract issues. he also believes that this would bring down the morale of the department and scare off potential recruits. now, sjpd has gone from about 1400 officers nearly a decade ago down to about 900. they are in the process of hiring 200 other officers but that could take a while so the city council member says until then, why not get help from other agencies? >> let's augment on a temporary basis by contracting, for example, the highway patrol to give out tickets within the city and then when the police force rises in its number then you no longer have to do that. >> and as far as paying for it well, the city council member says the money to pay would come from the nearly 200 openings that sjpd already has until those officers are ready to get on the streets. so later today the chief is expected to list his reasons why this is not a good idea to the city council member during the regular meetings at 1:30.
