When will it start going to us? 

 

17.1

Million Dollars for Overtime

We believe that the police like the Fire department did a couple of years ago should be forced to reign in their overtime. The police department is also trying to add 15 new positions which are not in line where in city of Milwaukee wants money to be spent.

 

3.9

Million Dollars allotted to vehicles

This comes from the capital budget. Up until 2018 police vehicles and equipment were in the Department's budget. This change is adding additional taxpayer dollars into police spending without forcing the police to make tough fiscal choices like every other department in the city.

 
 

7

million dollars for building renovations

The police building is slated to be remodeled while much of our community has been left to fall apart due to through chronic disinvestment.


Police can’t end homelessness. But increasing access to affordable housing can.
