Who in their right mind would want to work there anyways?

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — There are now 120 sworn officer vacancies in the Portland Police Bureau. At a City Council meeting Tuesday, Chief Danielle Outlaw shared some of the challenges they face in hiring new people and filling those positions.

The assistant chief told the City Commissioners that out of more than 60 people who applied for public safety specialist jobs, only 3 passed background checks. The biggest reasons for their disqualification is past drug use or dishonesty in their application.

    Who wouldn’t want to work where the public hates you, the mayor and city council tie one hand behind your back, the streets and parks are filled with the homeless, their used needles, feces, and urine, all for low pay. Thanks, but I’ll keep shoveling shit and humping hay out in the sticks.

    The ‘mayor’ just hired the former head of the police union to act as a liaison – at $98k per year. Rub my belly…

    Well, since not enough applicants qualify, you know the next move is going to lower standards. Sort of like getting a Ranger tab for finishing boot camp.
