Santa Ana has reached a tentative agreement with its police officers on a 2-year contract, ending a bitter, 18-month-old labor dispute that led to heavy police involvement in city politics and contributed to the resignation of a chief. The tentative accord was reached in a negotiating session Friday afternoon, said Sgt. Donald Blankenship, president of the Santa Ana Police Benevolent Assn., which represents about 440 sworn officers and non-sworn personnel.

Santa Ana officials obtained a preliminary injunction Monday in Orange County Superior Court to block police officers, with whom they are engaged in tough contract negotiations, from striking or calling in sick when they are not ill.

Work stoppages by police are illegal because they pose an inherent risk to public safety, a state appellate court ruled Thursday in a case involving the Santa Ana police. The ruling appears to clarify a 1985 state Supreme Court decision that recognized public employees' right to strike--a right that until then had been withheld by lower courts--as long as the strike posed no threat to public health or safety.
