Chanting "We want a new contract, now," about 200 police officers set up a tent city outside City Hall on Monday to protest stalled contract talks. The Police Officers Assn. has been working without a raise or contract since 1993, and union members said that has caused several veteran officers to leave the department. "This is a peaceful demonstration to show residents what is going on in their city," said David McCain, a police officer and spokesman for the union, which organized the protest.

A day after 54 police officers called in sick, the city obtained a temporary restraining order Tuesday to prevent another bout of blue flu. During Monday's shifts, 48 of 64 patrol officers and six of nine jail officers called in sick, apparently in protest of stalled contract negotiations between the union and the city. Lt. Dan Johnson said detectives and other investigators were put into patrol cars to fill in for the officers. "We were at minimum staffing," Johnson said.

Armed with tents, sleeping bags and discontent, members of the Police Officers Assn. plan to erect a two-day "homeless camp" on the steps of City Hall next week to protest the lack of progress in contract negotiations with the city. The union has been working without a formal contract since 1993. Many union members say the impasse is worsening police services, morale and safety because experienced police officers are leaving and few are joining their ranks.
