    This item absolutely needs to be reconsidered. I request that the Phoenix City Council fully funds OAT and CRB with $3 million! The City of Phoenix should also reallocate their $25 million budget increase for the Public Safety Department to Community Development and Enrichment programs. The gross disparity between the $944 million budget for public safety vs. the $51 million for community development says it all.

    I support Phoenix PD, defunding would negatively affect our community as a whole.

    The police just need to pull themselves up by their bootstraps and figure out how to make due without the budget increase. It should be allocated to social support services that are criminally underfunded, not the most violent police force in the country.

    We STRONGLY support full funding of the first responders. The need for officers, training and equipment is great to keep Phoenix safe.

    We demand the Council to support the community and fully fund the Office of Accountability and Transparency (OAT) and Civilian Review Board (CRB) with a budget allocation of a minimum of $3 million and reallocate $25 million to mental health and youth programs instead of giving the Phoenix Police Department a $25 million increase.

    The police don't need more money, they need to stop buying equipment from the military and they need to fire all the racist and aggressive officers. Take the increase that you want to give to police for a civilians oversight board to finally give the police real oversight, because they are incapable of keeping themselves in check.

    I am a Phoenix resident (85018and I urge you not to oppose the 2020-21 budget as it stands. Please vote to allocate $3 million to the Office of Accountability and Transparency and Civilian Review Board in the budget. It is time for you to take immediate action and defund the police. Invest in programs in our communities that improve our health and lives. Vote against the $25 million pay raise for police and fund youth programs and mental health services by $25 million. Thank you.

    With one of the highest officer-involved shooting rates in the county, we need the Office of Accountability and Transparency (OAT) and Civilian Review Board (CRB). Now is the time to focus on those in need. I demand the city reallocate $25 million to mental health and youth programs instead of giving the Phoenix Police Department a $25 million increase for salaries.

    Residents of Phoenix love our Police Department and stand by them and their families. Police hating councilmembers and mayor are an embarrassment to our city. Thank you to every officer! Sorry you have to go through this garbage!

    Arizona "demands" the budget be passed as is. Arizona does not support defunding police depts in any way! If anything they need more funding for better training and improved equipment.

    I support a fully funded Civilian Review Board and reallocating the $25 million budget increase for police department salaries to mental health and youth programs. Police are reactive, we must invest in proactive solutions. PLEASE LISTEN!

    I request that the City of Phoenix fully fund OAT and CRB at $3 million and reallocate the $25 million increase to mental health, youth organizations, and education.

    Phoenix must act to fully fund the civilian review board at $3 million and redirect $25 million from the police budget to mental health and youth programs.

    Over the past 12 days, we have seen that there is one common element that makes protests unsafe in our city - the presence, aggression, and militarization of the Phoenix Police department. Cities from New York to Minneapolis are taking the lead to strip funding from their police, and Phoenix must follow suit!

    We demand the city reallocate $25 million to mental health and youth programs instead of giving the Phoenix Police Department a $25 million increase for salaries. The Phoenix Police Department is statistically ranked one of highest in the country for cases of police killing civilians. The city of Phoenix needs and deserves policing alternatives and investments in mental health and trauma services, education and after-school care, adequate housing, healthcare, and employment opportunities.

    I support a City of Phoenix Civilian Review Board and funding for
    youth and mental health services. I current amount of $400,000 is insufficient. Over $1M is needed.
