SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – An eleventh hour maneuver has saved 35 Sacramento police officer’s jobs.
The city council voted last week to lay off more than 80 police officers in order to help cut the city’s $39 million budget deficit. But the police department says it has received a federal grant exemption that will allow it to keep 35 of those officers.
The grant money had been given to the department on the condition they did not lay off officers. But the city asked for an exemption to that rule and got it.
The officers will be assigned to downtown patrols.
