Vote to cut Derry police overtime budget defeated
Councilor Thomas Cardon proposed that the department’s overtime budget of $ 731,522 be cut by $31,522.
Garone said that a large portion of the department’s overtime budget, about 50 percent, is devoted to covering officers’ absences. Another 20 percent is devoted to training, which is a mandatory expense for the department, and 10 percent each for court assignments and special operations. Only about 10 percent is then left for patrol shifts, he said.
“We are on a balancing act with the overtime money we have,” Thomas said.
Then council later voted 7-0 to move the department’s proposed Fiscal Year 2015 budget of $8,794,064 forward.
