Title

Resolution relating to Police Department overtime expenditures.

 

Analysis

This resolution directs the Fire and Police Commission to collaborate with the Police Department to develop initiatives to reduce Police overtime expenditures. 

 

Body

Whereas, The 2020 Adopted Budget includes a Common Council-added footnote (Amendment 34) directing the Fire and Police Commission to work with the Police Department to develop initiatives to reduce Police overtime expenditures; and

 

Whereas, Police Department overtime expenditures have increased significantly in recent years, from $13.2 million in 2014 to $18.8 million in 2018; and

 

Whereas, Police overtime expenditures arise from extensions of duty, availability for court appearances, straight overtime, and civilian overtime; and

 

Whereas, The City of Milwaukee is facing increasingly lean budgets, stemming in part from limited revenue sources and ballooning pension costs; and

 

Whereas, Controlling Police overtime expenditures, and in particular limiting overtime expenditures to the amount included in the Department’s annual budget as adopted by the Common Council, may require innovative thinking, structural changes and changes to Department operations and policies; now, therefore, be it

 

Resolved, By the Common Council of the City of Milwaukee, that the Fire and Police Commission is directed to collaborate with the Police Department to develop initiatives to reduce Police overtime expenditures; and, be it

 

Further Resolved, That the Fire and Police Commission and the Police Department shall jointly report their progress to the Common Council within 120 days of adoption of this resolution.
