Abstract Following the death of George Floyd, there were national calls for budget reductions and reforms for police departments. The City of San Jose’s Auditor’s Office analyzed the police department’s budget components to understand what police services were being provided. This case study examined several research questions, such as how police overtime funding is being used to deliver police services, and whether the use of overtime is the most efficient method of services delivery. It analyzes why and how overtime allows for equitable and responsive police services, even when the department is short staffed.
