Violent crime up, Police overtime and cadet classes down

The title says it all, violent crime is up over 5%, but police overtime budget as well as cadet classes have been slashed in a back room move by the mayor, WITHOUT input from Council, and WITHOUT approval by Chief Hurtt. The city claims that overall the crime rate has gone down 5.7 percent, but violent crimes are up. A lot of scenarios could account for that, but I'm guessing some of that is underreporting.
