COVID-19 cases have led to serious staffing concerns at the San Jose Police Department.
Sources told NBC Bay Area Sunday that COVID-19 cases and exposures have increased to the point, that the patrol unit is having trouble meeting minimum staffing levels.
The department is asking for all officers to voluntarily step up this weekend to work as a patrol officer.
In addition, starting on Jan. 24, the department will require all officers who are not on patrol to do so for one of their weekly 10-hour shifts.
