    I 100% support this budget. We need to continue to support our police officers with training and resources to support them like they support our community. I stand with Phoenix PD.

    The police department is already understaffed and working with outdated/poorly operational equipment. Decreasing funds will not better the department, it will only make things harder for the officers who are already overworked and doing their best to keep up with the workload.

    I fully support to Phoenix police Department. The police officers go above and beyond their jobs. They are over worked and Under appreciated. Please do not take their funding away.

    I’m Maryvale through and through. PODER doesn’t speak for me. I support Phoenix PD 100%. I urge you to pass the budget now. Deputy City Manager Jeff Barton spelled it out crystal clear. You are all elected officials and will be up for re-election someday. We the silent majority are watching. Show some true leadership and pass the budget. Your unnecessary O.A.T. has enough to get started. Garcia, Pastor, Guardado & Gallego are a disgrace to this great city!

    I was born and raised in this great city. I was deeply saddened by the destruction of downtown from the riots 5/29-5/31. Since then the Phoenix Police Dept has done an excellent job keeping the peace and allowing PROTESTS NOT RIOTS. I fully support the Phoenix Police Dept and pray this council does not undervalue the work these men and women do on a daily basis to keep our city safe. We shouldn't give in to the destructive movement that is demanding to defund the police.

    Please don't listen to the extreme few protestors who dont want to fund the police. They dont understand or see the importance of the police. I have been a long time resident and loved Phoenix, but people like Gallego and Garcia are ruining our city. Please do NOT defund the police. Makes no sense. Thank you police for your hard work. Defund garcia and gallego.

    After the police continually answered the call and worked mandatory overtime so citizens could demonstrate their frustrations and after working tirelsessly through times when others were able to shelter in place it is unthinkable that anyone would try to take away from the budget! How dare the counsel allow the extremists to pull any funding in a last minute effort. Counsel needs to oppose the action and show support for first responders immediately. Anything less is unacceptable!!

    You’d have to be crazy to want to become a police officer in this climate and decreasing funding will just put more stress on an occupation which already has high attrition. People love to make emotional, anecdotal arguments these days, but I’ll make a dollars and cents argument. Is it cheaper to have to hire new officers constantly because they’re overworked and under-appreciated, or keep the ones you have and just pass the budget already?

    Defunding the police would have a negative impact on our community.

    Keep the police funded! Losing 25% of their budget would be a massive loss. A smaller budget equals less training, training isn’t free. People want perfect police officers, a underfunded undertrained and understaffed department isn’t going to get them that.
