DENVER, Colo. — After the biggest hiring push in the Denver Police Department's history, the city is dealing with an unexpected circumstance: too many cops on the payroll.
The city, which has hired 516 police recruits since 2003, has about 65 more men and women in uniform than were factored -into the 2007 budget, because fewer than anticipated have retired or left.
