Stockton police budget battle takes a new turn STOCKTON, Calif. (AP) — Under a tentative deal with the debt-ridden city of Stockton, the police union would be blocked from renting out a house it bought next to the city manager’s home after a dispute about cuts to the police department. The Stockton Police Officers’ Association bought the home last year and the city responded by suing the union, alleging it made the purchase to intimidate City Manager Bob Deis and his family. The Stockton Record reports (http://bit.ly/VRvHYT) the terms are included in the city’s new contract with the association, and are expected to be finalized by the City Council Tuesday. The union previously paid for a billboard at the city’s entrance that read: “Welcome to the 2nd most dangerous city in California: Stop laying off cops!” The union maintains the city went after public safety with cuts.
