A Year After ‘Defund’ Demands, San Diego May Hike Police Spending Again

The Community Budget Alliance’s push to redefine public safety is mentioned in this Voice of San Diego article about Mayor Todd Gloria’s proposed FY22 proposed budget:  

“The Community Budget Alliance, a progressive advocacy group, has released its alternative vision for city spending, including a roadmap to “redefine public safety,” in its People’s Budget, which “equitably invests public dollars and combats systemic racism.”

That proposal doesn’t set an overall spending cut it hopes to hit, but rather identifies areas of spending the group believes should be reallocated. It calls for cut the department’s overtime budget, plus diverting $16 million spent on gang policing into community-focused investments instead.”
