Taxes to help hiring police

first_imgSIMI VALLEY – Thanks to shoppers at the newly opened Simi Valley Town Center, the Police Department will hire four more officers to supplement its force of 127. The council approved spending $410,900 for the hires, money that includes the cost for vehicles, mobile radios and training, among other things. The annual ongoing costs will be roughly $533,000. The funding will come from additional sales tax revenue from the mall, which opened in October. “The city is growing in population,” said Sgt. Stephanie Shannon, police spokeswoman. “With the new mall being added, we’re looking to add a seventh beat. We currently have six. By adding that seventh beat, it allows us to offer better patrol, better coverage and quicker response.” The department will expand its recruitment effort, which includes job fairs, to get qualified candidates, officials said. It could take up to six months before the department hires anybody. The salary range for the four new officers is $51,000 to $69,000 a year, plus benefits.

Simi Valley’s population is about 120,000. “Our first priority to the residents of Simi Valley is providing a safe community,” he said. “When you have a safe community, you can focus on all the other quality-of-life issues, like landscaping, improvements on roads, the mall.” Recruiting additional officers, however, could be a challenge, one seen throughout California. “The application pool, in terms of numbers, has decreased,” Shannon said. “Law enforcement isn’t as desirable as it used to be.” last_img read more
