CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. — The Chattanooga Police Department didn't hire any new officers in 2009 and, because of city budget constraints, has no plans to do so during fiscal year 2010.
"Money could come from somewhere before the end of the 2009-2010 budget year," police Chief Freeman Cooper said. "But I have no idea where that money might be coming from."
