What’s the problem with public safety service funding?

The nature of public safety work has increased in complexity. The growing opioid crisis and a related rise in property crime are part of the challenge. Law enforcement officers are often called to respond to incidents involving drugs, mental health, homelessness and other social issues. Less known, but equally important is the impact of outdated facilities and equipment.
