As public servants go, Zimmerman is one of the worst.

San Diego Police Chief Shelley Zimmerman will receive up to $898,900 when she retires, based on city pension data calculations according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.

Zimmerman, who has held the position since 2014, must retire at the beginning of March because she will have reached the five-year limit of the city’s deferred retirement option program.

It’s an insult to taxpayers and a criminal money grab by Zimmerman.

Critics say this is a form of double dipping, receiving a paycheck and pension checks for their last five years on the job. Pension payments are placed into a special account available only when they retire, and data show the payouts from such accounts can exceed $1 million.

She will receive that money on top of her annual pension, to be calculated based on her $176,500 salary.
