Phoenix police chief denies use of a quota system

PHOENIX -- Phoenix police officials said the department doesn't have a quota system in place, and its union wants to make sure it stays that way.

The president of the Phoenix Law Enforcement Association, Joe Clure, said he supports proactive policing to increase productivity.

But Clure told KPHO-TV that he's heard a lot of concern from some Phoenix police officers that it means they're going to be put on a quota system.

Phoenix Police Chief Daniel Garcia said recent discussions concerning performance measures may have led some to speculate that the department has quotas that officers are expected to meet.

Garcia said the Phoenix Police Department "doesn't utilize quotas as a measure of police services."

He said performance measures assist law enforcement leadership in determining when, where and how to deploy officers.
