Examples of Departments in a Sentence

  1. Lori Tremmel Freeman:

    There is a large national effort underway to promote school vaccine clinics being held or incorporated into back-to-school activities, we're hearing from our health departments actively working with their school districts to support school vaccination efforts, including working with school nurses in the community to make sure they have needed resources and assistance to host a successful vaccine clinic -- and that is certainly happening universally across the country in different jurisdictions.

  2. Fernandez Rundle:

    Excessive force can never, ever be an acceptable solution, we're all really horrified by it. When we see this, it’s alarming, it’s disturbing. Nobody wants this to happen including police departments themselves.

  3. Lisa Dadio:

    In several of your larger cities, budgets have been increased to police departments, and the big thing is: people don't feel safe. So, in a city that thrives on tourists coming and entertainment, if people don't feel safe, all of that's going to be impacted, and [it] impacts tax on food and beverages and entertainment. It really has a catastrophic effect across everything.

  4. George Steinbrenner:

    I ’m not afraid to make changes as we saw with the manager a few years ago, but the changes have to be made for more than just the sake of making changes. I know I'm stating the obvious, But again, I ’m going to be looking at everybody’s performance at the end of the year throughout the organization, baseball ops or not, and that’s what I do every year, and it’s not something I tend to do in the middle of the year. Do I like consistency, do I( like) having the same people around, that I am used to, that I communicate well with, that we can kind of understand each other ? Yes. But not if we're having serious problems with that person’s performance or in the way that players or in other departments, other employees look — respect or don't respect that person.

  5. Another Chicago alderman:

    We've been saying this was coming for the last five or six years that I've been in office, the rate of attrition, we are not keeping up with it. They're not actively going out looking for more police officers to take this job. You actually have city council members pushing to defund the police department, take more money away from them, allocate it to other departments, we're pushing a boulder up the hill right now. And if we don't get all on the same team and we're not all working in the same direction, we're going to lose our city as quick as we can believe it.
