Fastest Parking Ticketer in the West?

The San Francisco Chronicle had this blurb:

Sergeant Greenfield notes he’s given 500 parking tickets in a day. Assuming 8 hours in a day, that’s more than 1 a minute.

Pretty efficient.

But I’m pretty sure this is nowhere near the norm. Looking at the overall number of parking tickets and the number of parking enforcement officers, the average seems more like 80 parking tickets a day: 1.5+ million parking tickets given out in 2008, 80 enforcement officers working 250 days each in a year.

If the average were only pulled up to 200 parking tickets per day, that would mean either half as many parking enforcement officers or twice as many parking tickets, or more likely some combination of both.
