NYPD’s Budget Will Be Slashed By 1 Billion, Major Says

(TELESUR) – That money will be invested in youth and social services.

New York Police Department’s 2021 municipal budget will be reduced by 1 billion dollars after City Mayor Bill de Blasio committed to it on Tuesday.

In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic and nationwide protests against police violence derived from Geroge Floyd’s death, police budget will suffer a reduction that will be invested in youth and social services.

“To say the least, this has been the toughest budget that we’ve had to do as an administration here at City Hall,” de Blasio said. “We are in a whole different situation in New York City that we have ever faced in our history, a healthcare crisis, a disparity crisis, a budget crisis, all wrapped into one.”
