San Fransisco Votes to Hire More Police

The San Fransisco Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday to tie the number of police officers the city employs to the size of the population. Proponents of the resolution say that it will address an increase in property crimes experienced in recent years. Opponents however say that the size of a police force does not necessarily correlate with a drop in crime, but rather the San Fransisco police department needs to improve its officer training procedures. From San Fransisco city hall Pacifica's Mike Kohn files this report.
