The police union's accusations of political sign tampering have angered two council members who say their reelection campaigns are being falsely implicated. The Police Officers' Assn. last week offered a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of anyone caught stealing or defacing a political sign. A union representative said their campaign posters were being "systematically defaced and destroyed by the opposition."

The Huntington Beach Police Officers Assn. said Friday that it is reconsidering its endorsement of lawyer Ron Davis for city attorney after learning he was arrested and charged with bribery in 1983. The case against Davis, who is in a tough election battle against veteran City Atty. Gail Hutton, was later dismissed, and the California State Bar exonerated him in its own investigation.

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.

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.

Huntington Beach police officers have filed a lawsuit challenging a new department policy that requires narcotics investigators to disclose their personal financial holdings. The policy was implemented July 1 to guard against graft and corruption among narcotics officers, who frequently encounter large quantities of drugs and money. "It's really a system to keep honest people honest," said Huntington Beach Police Chief Ronald E. Lowenberg. "But it's not an indication that we have any bad cops."
