After the Austin city council voted unanimously to defund its police department by about one-third of its budget, in August 2020, many predicted that once the cuts kicked in a flood of officers would leave the force as soon as they could. The new district attorney’s policy of re-investigating police officers for closed cases is also expected to cause officers to resign or retire.

 

The city council’s cuts officially kicked in and have been in place for a few months.

PJ Media reports exclusively that APD is now suffering a huge surge of officer departures putting it on pace to shatter 2020’s record.

In January 2021, sources tell PJ Media 20 officers retired from APD and eight resigned, for a total of 28 departures.

In February 2021, five officers resigned and six retired, according to multiple sources, for a total of 11 departures.

In March 2021, 24 more officers left APD, with 20 officers retiring. Additionally, three officers resigned and one was terminated.:snip:

The same could be wrote about any Woke city. The same is happening here in mpls.

Who would want to be a policeman in this climate. You get more respect being a professional protester. Sigh.

And those cops who stay, are they going to be aggressive forward leaning in their job? This is another thing we're seeing.

Burnt Out Portland Police Officers Are Fleeing the City in Droves

“The city council are raging idiots, in addition to being stupid. Additionally, the mayor and council ignore actual facts on crime and policing in favor of radical leftist and anarchist fantasy.”

The radical left has been rioting in Portland, Oregon on a nearly nightly basis since last spring. Now some police officers in the city are heading for the exits.

Who can blame them?

Police in Portland get little to no support from the mayor’s office and the city’s prosecutors release almost anyone who is arrested for rioting overnight.

Would you stay?
