In one of the mailers being sent out by the Anti-Recall group in Akron, it says, “The Mayor has helped revitalize our city…and generated enough revenue to provide for 100 additional police officers in our neighborhoods.”
Huh? Where are they Mayor Don Plusquellic? Numbers don’t lie, but you do! In order to decipher the truth and the lies about just how many Akron police officers we have here in Akron and to see just how many have or have not been added, we complied a chart of the number of sworn officers going back to 1986, where his reign began. These statistics are from the Akron Police Departments Annual Reports.
