OAKLAND, Calif. — Oakland Police Department patrol officers will work 12-hour shifts under an arbitrator's decision released this week, in what Police Chief Wayne Tucker described as a key victory for public safety in Oakland.
Tucker was pitted against the Oakland Police Officers Association for more than a year on the issue. The union had hoped to stay on 10-hour shifts.
