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.
