More Oakland cops to hit the streets

OAKLAND, CA

They will be pulled from desk duty in response to concerns by Oakland residents over 911 response times, gang violence and other crime.

New Police Chief Anthony Batts came up with the plan.

The redeployment plans come on the one-year anniversary of the shooting death of four officers by one suspect in a traffic stop and the resulting raid by SWAT team members.
