D.C. Council Set To Vote On Budget

(Washington, DC)  —  The D.C. Council is set to vote today on a budget that could result in fewer officers in the Metropolitan Police Department.  The proposal to slash the Police Department’s budget by nearly 15-million-dollars is up for a second and final vote today.  If certified by the Chief Financial Officer, the changes would mean a hiring freeze and possibly fewer officers on the streets of the District.
