Lansing Mayor Vrig Bernero’s proposed budget for the 2013 fiscal year appropriates over $1 million for new police headquarters for the Lansing Police Department. However, the budget does not provide increased funds for police resources. In July 2011, the Lansing Police Department laid off 36 officers due to budget restrictions. This resulted in fewer arrests and slower police response times throughout Lansing. In light of these layoffs, many are outraged that Mayor Bernero’s budget does not provide Lansing Police Officers with more resources and materials to keep Lansing safe.
