No Hiring in Phoenix
The Phoenix Police Department will extend its hiring freeze to 2015, which means the city would go 6½ years without a new officer recruited to the force.
City officials have relied on attrition -- keeping positions unfilled as officers have left the department -- to avoid layoffs as a way to make up for lagging sales-tax collections dedicated to funding public safety.
Imagine being the low seniority guy in the last class of 2008/2009.
