Palo Alto officers may moonlight at Levi's Stadium

This has no benefit to residents of the city. Most ridiculous proposal.
Likely by a politician looking to pick up campaign contributions and union backing.

Nice, so now our officers can work a full 7 days a week. So we can have tired an un alert officers working our streets. Looks like city council members will be getting some box seats?X

Hey Tpars let your cops work these games voluntarily. If they want to work on their days off let them. Who cares if they work 7 days?!?!

Most PA cops cannot afford to live here. Real Estate agents laugh at them. The one officer I know who lives nearby, lives in a crime-ridden, high-density community of rundown condos!

Most PA cops commute from somewhere in the East Bay, and carpool to get here. Knowing what that does to one's car, and the cost of gas and tires, I am sure they need the extra income.

They are not doing anything illegal, so who cares how they make much-needed extra income on their days off?
