The Chief is overpayed just like the rest of them. The action of defunding the police and cutting their budget is linked to restructuring how the police force is funded. No more wasteful SWAT militarization bullcrap. Transfer 911 to civilian control. Reduce administration costs! It’s ridiculous that an area as large as West Seattle would only get 8 cops on patrol. Even if you are scared by defunding talks you have to see that the current system doesn’t work.
