Wednesday, April 29: Budget Challenges in Larger Police Departments   [open html - 0B]

From the Webpage: "'Stay-at-home orders are severely impacting the economy, and municipalities are beginning to plan for lower tax revenues and smaller budgets. [The April 27, 2020] Daily COVID [coronavirus disease] Report provided guidance from sheriffs' offices and medium-size cities about how to plan for possible budget cuts. In today's report, officials from larger police agencies shared information with PERF [Police Executive Research Forum] about what they are facing. According to a survey by the U.S. Conference of Mayors and the National League of Cities, 88% of cities expect a revenue shortfall this year as a result of COVID-19. And 52% said that budget cuts will impact police departments and public safety.'"
