Antioch police ask for cash donations
ANTIOCH, Calif. (KGO) -- The city of Antioch's police department is hurting for cash so badly, officials are asking for donations.
ABC7's media partner the Contra Costa Times reports that Antioch has opened up a bank account where people can deposit money to help pay for police services.
Many donors want to help match a pledge made last month by the president of the Antioch Auto Center. So far the donations are working.
Antioch has delayed laying off six officers, but they still could lose their jobs later this month.
