That is the result of the city shorting us on people, a bloated top heavy command and too many people in special units.

Ya it really only works well if you have a good number of officers and sergeants that establish a reasonable minimum staffing level.
Our team is 13 officers and we decided as a team with our sergeant that 6 would be our minimum staffing. Rarely if ever do we only have 6 that show up for a shift though, usually 1-2 on vacation a week or at some kind of training and guys hardly ever call in sick. It works well, the main thing is to discuss it with sergeant and not let your whole team ask off (like during holidays)
