Here’s How You Can Save Money without Cutting Cops, Mayor Adams
Mayor Adams has known for a year and a half that his mismanagement of the migrant crisis would force New York City to cut billions in spending — yet last week, his first move was to go full apocalypse, canceling police-academy classes and thus endangering his only real campaign promise, to improve public safety.
If Adams really wants to protect the NYPD — and libraries too! — there are other places he can cut.
The mayor projects canceling police-academy classes will save $42 million this year, $289 million the next year and $229 million for each of the following two years.
