Reno Mayor Asking For More Police Officers

Reno Mayor Hillary Schieve is asking for more police officers in the next city budget. The tentative budget plan calls for a new deputy chief, and a new dispatcher, but the Mayor says having only six dispatchers ins’t enough and that we need more officers on the streets to maintain safety. The current number is 327, but Police Chief Jason Soto says it should be closer to 450.
