De Blasio announces proposal to cut NYPD budget by $1B

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said he has proposed a plan for the city to cut $1 billion from the NYPD’s nearly $6 billion budget.

The Democratic mayor revealed details of his proposal during a Monday morning press conference at City Hall. His announcement falls in line with city council leaders’ calls for the billion-dollar cut to the police department’s budget.

"My office presented to City Council a plan that would achieve the billion in savings for the NYPD and shift resources to young people, to communities in a way that would help address a lot of the underlying issues that we know are the cause of so many problems in our society," he said.

De Blasio prefaced his announcement by detailing what he described as "the toughest budget that we've had to do as an administration here at City Hall."
