Here’s what the calls say according to a resident who received one this afternoon:

“Hi this is Chris Tracy, Tacoma Police officer, community will lose 130 officers or 30% of their force…. Layoffs would undermine YOUR safety and welfare. Please call #253-591-5130 and let the council and city manager know to stop these DANGEROUS layoffs. Paid for by Tacoma Police Union local #6.”
