Following the Burlington City Council’s action to reduce the number of sworn officers in the Burlington Police Department through attrition in June of 2020, the department had considered dramatically reducing the overnight shift when officer counts dropped to a level requiring curtailed service. Acting Chief Murad developed the Priority Response Plan as an alternative to previously discussed options that preserves, at least for now, a slightly larger overnight shift. The Priority Response Plan accounts for new staffing levels by eliminating one officer position from each of the three shifts.
