Colonel Klunk also known as Chief Flint of the Atherton PD has now decided bringing in a chief from outside Atherton isn't enough. For the first time he's hiring a sergeant from outside and is not promoting from within the ranks.
What message does this send to the Officers in Atherton? That they can have a career here? That they are opportunities to advance in their job?
If Flint was hired to destroy whatever morale was left he's done a really good job. Residents should wake up and realize that between the morale hits and the compensation hits the council has planned, there won't be an Atherton police department much longer. Officers are going to go where they are wanted and appreciated.
