Janesville Police Department operates below budgeted staffing levels
The Janesville Police Department has two newly sworn officers.
This brings the department's staffing level to 102 according to Chief David Moore. The department's budget allows for a staff of 104 however. Moore says he's holding back on the other two hires until the 2012 budget is worked out. He says this way, lay-offs may be prevented.
Even though the number of officers in Janesville is below the peer city average, Moore credits members of the department for continuing a high level of service to the public.
