Police Bureau Is Not $5 Million Over Budget

Mayor Sam Adams presents budget news on April 15

Just last week, Mayor Sam Adams singled out the Portland Police Bureau for being "projected to overspend its budget by up to $5 million."

But in a meeting today with labor leaders and city bureau directors — after a question from Chief Rosie Sizer about her bureau's financial condition — a representative of the city's budget office told the gathered crowd that new projections showed Portland Police faced only a $1.3 million budget gap this year. (The bureau has until June 30 to address that gap and has already taken steps to do so.)

If there was any good news in Adams' briefing, that was it.

The rest of Adams' message was that bureaus would have to make immediate cuts for this year in order to prevent even deeper cuts next year.
