The City of San Jose and its police union have reached a tentative agreement that will save the jobs of 156 police officers at risk of being laid off.

The package announced Friday morning calls for a 10 percent pay reduction across the board for police officers.

The agreement allows the city to outsource airport police and the civilianization of 20 positions.

The tentative agreement is between the city and police union leaders; rank and file officers would still have to approve the pay reduction.

Though the jobs of 156 police officers will be saved, more than 100 officers will still be let go.
