The Flagstaff City Council is meeting today at 5PM via Zoom to discuss possibly defunding some of the Flagstaff Police Departments budget and redirecting upwards of $1,200,000 to an “alternate care response” program.
A rally to maintain the department and staffing at current levels is planned in front of Flagstaff City Hall (211 West Aspen Ave) Monday at 5PM.
The Flagstaff Police Department is currently short by about 13 officers and this proposal, if approved, would make it so these vacant positions are not filled and the money would instead be redirected away from traditional policing.
Jeff will talk with the President of the Flagstaff Law Enforcement Association (FLEA) Michael Oliver today at 4:06 on 97.1FM the Big Talker & via live stream covering police pay, funding levels, morale, retention of officers and much more!
