SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) — Short hundreds of officers, San Francisco is now looking back to a Gold Rush-era idea for a possible staffing solution.
The police commission is hoping a new squad of officers will free up the police department to focus on more serious crimes.
They are called “patrol specials” — security guards with some police training. For a city struggling to get a handle on crime, some government officials say it could be a quick way to add eyes and ears to the streets of San Francisco.
I’m not saying I watched the Christian Slater film a whole bunch–not a Showtime-in-the-trailer bunch–but I saw it in the theaters and then bought it on videocassette and watched it numerous times.
I still have the VHS tape in the Nogglestead video library. Perhaps I will dust it off for old times’ sake.
Man, I wanted to be like Christian Slater in the middle 1990s.
