#SanDiego Sheriff’s Department submits bogus bill for #bordersecurity

Screenshot 2018-02-03 at 08.17.06.pngSan Diego Sheriff’s Department deputies, fearing large-scale protests over the construction of President Donald Trump’s border wall prototypes last fall, logged more than 10,000 hours of overtime in a three-month period before and after project construction.

The department had previously disclosed it had spent $764,278 on overtime for security. It was the largest single expenditure — more than the $715,170 in wages paid out — of a total expense of $1.6 million.

In all, some 356 employees racked up overtime hours on 46 separate dates from Sept. 7 through Dec. 15, according to a county spokeswoman. Collectively, they totaled 10,227 hours of overtime work.

The bills are apparently totally bogus…a money grab by the department.

According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, no protests occurred during the month-long construction of the eight prototype walls.
