Individual: Chief Eric Jones
Outfit: Stockton Police Department
Stockton Police claim that due to bankruptcy in Stockton Ca. they lack the funds needed to respond to an array of complaints, and that certain crimes must be reported by victims, via a police reporting kiosk in the departments lobby.
Some of these crimes include 459 residential burglaries, 10851 Auto thefts, and 211 armed robberies.
We find it a JOKE that they claim the funds and man power are not available to them to respond to serious crimes such as these, yet they are paying at least one, if not a whole team, of officers to monitor a Facebook page dedicated to keeping their unprofessional actions in the limelight.
The Facebook page is the Stockton Police Department, Corruption Reporting Page.
Admins of this page have recently had a bombardment of Facebook notifications come in, and have had the page forcefully “unpublished” for “violating community standards”. The only time the page gets these notifications is when photos of Chief Eric Jones, or councilman Elbert Holman are posted with captions or dialogue beneath that either point out lies, or failures among the department or city leaders.
Stockton police officers make and average of $60,000 dollars a year. How much of that tax money is being used to keep these truths and opinions from the same people forced to pay for their “service”?
Please call Chief Eric Jones and ask him to justify these actions. Ask Chief Jones why his department cannot afford to protect and serve the citizens, but they can afford to monitor a Facebook page dedicated to exposing corruption within their department. Don’t allow tax payer to pay one more dime for censorship.
Call: Chief Eric Jones at Office of the Chief of Police (209) 937-8218
Please also call: Public Information Officer, Joseph Silva (209) 937-8209
