League Webinar to Highlight Police Funding Challenges

State Limits Shrink Police Departments

One in three Wisconsin police departments had to reduce the number of sworn officers in 2019, as the one-two punch of levy limits and shrinking state support hammers local budgets. New research from the Wisconsin Policy Forum illustrates in sharp detail how communities across the state are struggling to maintain their police departments in the face of budgets that get tighter every year.
