SAN FRANCISO CHRONICLE
Friday's Chronicle brought us the news that as many as 185 police officers may leave the force due to budget considerations.

At issue is the department's Deferred Retirement Option Program. The plan, crafted by Police Officers Association President Gary Delagnes and approved by San Francisco voters, is designed to keep veteran officers on the force."
