in san jose, some overworked police are sleeping in rvs in a parking lot to save time on 17-hour shifts. maria medina reports on why they are told to go. >> reporter: you can see a few of the rvs behind me and they were being told to move all abuse of the circus. now, kpix 5 was the first to discover and to tell you about at least a dozen police officers sleeping in rvs in a parking lot near the department. many of them live far away and needed to sleep in rvs to get rest between regular and mandatory overtime shifts but recently they were told to get out of the parking lot or risk being towed because cirque du soleil was coming to town and just like they do every, single year they use that parking lot. now, there was a solution. so they are being relocated. >> the nice thing is, is our chief's office realized we have to put them somewhere else to get some sleep and that's what they did so that's a good thing. >> reporter: all right.
5:05 am
so we spotted work crews setting up new lights and a few rvs are now in the new parking lot. fortunately, there are 30 new recruits in the academy that will help with the shortage of police officers that is causing all of this. but we have learned that the same number of officers will be leaving the department next month to go to other departments or retire. again, you can see a few of those rvs here. they relocated and they relocated not too far from the parking lot they were originally. maria medina, kpix 5. san francisco police department's new "use of force" policy is a subject of a lawsuit. yesterday, the police union, the sfpoa, challenged that new policy in court. now, the union says that for safety reasons, officers need the latitude to shoot at moving vehicles or to use a chokehold on the carotid artery of a suspect but the judge ruled against the union. >> the "use of force" policy is

rethink travel altogether for autonomous vehicles to work like ditching their personal cars. >> we want people to be sharing that vehicle. otherwise, we're just going to see a lot more vehicles, a lot more vehicle use. >> reporter: which he says can lead to more congestion and pollution. if sacramento's application with the department of transportation gets approved this january, it could be as soon as next january that we'll see self-driving vehicles on city streets. in sacramento, drew bollea, kpix 5. the city of san francisco has a solution to people ready to kick their christmas trees to the curb. yup. today at the civic center you can watch dozens of christmas trees get fed right through that big wood chipper. the chips will be used for mulch or as biomass to generate electricity. the wood chipping starts at 10:30. and the events is to remind everyone, um, to recycle their trees starting on january 6. >> wish you could bring them
