SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - The Santa Fe Police Department is reversing a controversial 2011 decision that had police officers switch to a five-day work week from a four-day schedule.

The Santa Fe New Mexican (https://bit.ly/1jZaNaG) reports that officers will return to a four-day week on Aug. 2.

Then-Police Chief Ray Rael ordered the 2011 change, which he credited with reductions in burglaries and police overtime costs.

The five-day schedule was unpopular with officers who said it affected their quality of life.

Rael resigned earlier this year.
