I always love how so many have the answer, but don’t understand the question. By underfunded the police it will cost more in the long run to cover operations. Overtime is big part of the police budget. So with less funds to have for normal operations that means the more officers will have to work overtime to cover patrols, court, and other admin duties. The police, fire dept and EMT are first responders for a reason. They are call out first to check on the situation and then defer it to other department as needed. So how long will the social worker or any other enjoy being call out to a domestic at 3 AM to deal with a drunk husband and wife. After the first time, they tell you to sent the cops first and then deal with in the morning. Not even the fire dept or EMT will go into some areas until the scene is secured by police. If you think that re assign funds is going work then please put your money where your mouth is and show it how it done. Good Luck you’ll need it.
