Successfully eliminated unneeded certain task forces without the discharge of officers.
Found other areas in which cuts can be made in order to maintain the main goal of budget cuts without effecting officer employment.
Budget cut effectiveness conclusion continued
Reduce the amount of overtime by assigning officers pulled from other areas to work where they are needed.
Cost of supplies and materials were cut back on by buying from cheaper vendors and eliminate items/materials that were not deemed necessary to the task
Controlled employment by allowing officers to work the areas in which overtime was needed.
