WALLA WALLA, Wash. - Starting next year Walla Walla police will start operating on 12-hour shifts.
Chief Scott Bieber hopes the move to longer hours but fewer work days a week will improve communication, reduce overtime costs and give officers more time with their families.
The Union-Bulletin reports the new schedule will be evaluated after a year. Administrators or the Walla Walla Police Officers Guild could decide to go back to 8-hour shifts.
