Labor Policy Director F. Vincent Vernuccio explains today at the Huffington Post that claims in the same publication by Wayne County Sheriff Benny Napoleon that if Proposal 2 fails law enforcement personnel would no longer receive proper training are not true.

“Police training and certification are required by statute,” Vernuccio writes. “To say that unless collective bargaining is more powerful than the law police will not have the necessary skills to protect the public and themselves is disingenuous at best.”

Proposal 2 would, Vernuccio goes on, overturn some 170 laws and cost Michigan taxpayers $1.6 billion annually in lost reforms.
