Protests in the wake of the death of George Floyd in police custody in Minneapolis have brought attention to the spending priorities of municipalities, especially when it comes to police departments. What are the funding sources for Fort Wayne? What are police officers asked to do and why? What happens when funds are reprioritized?

 

Funding Public Safety is a discussion led by Andy Downs, Director of the Mike Downs Center for Indiana Politics. These conversations were recorded via Zoom.
