OGDEN POLICE EXPLAIN SLOWDOWN

Ogden police officers have bought newspaper ads to explain their work slowdown.

The Ogden Police Benefit Association informally began the slowdown during the weekend to persuade the City Council to increase police spending.The slowdown means officers plan to devote more time to individual calls, rather than getting quickly to more calls.

The city administration during the past years "has lulled the people of Ogden into a false sense of security" about law enforcement, reads the newspaper advertisement.
