Public Safety Pizza

June 8, 2011

Since 2006, crime in Memphis is down 30 percent, and last year, we had our lowest homicide rate since the ’70s.

But results take personnel, resources, and money.

Mayor A C Wharton, Jr., and members of the council feel strongly that public safety gets the resources it needs, and in the last two years or so, $23 million in cuts and reductions have come from areas of city government other than police and fire. 

But that means the cuts have come from just 40 percent of the city budget.  

The second in our “Budget Talk: Did You Know?” series features the Public Safety Pizza (with a cameo from a Supreme at Broadway Pizza).
