Dearborn Police Budget
The City of Dearborn operates on a June - June fiscal year calendar. The Dearborn police department reliably receives the largest share of funding through each budgetary process. We are working to track budgetary decisions in the city, and the impact of defunding nonpolice city services as we advocate for defunding the Dearborn police department.
2006 -- 2021 the Dearborn Police budget has expanded from approximately $26 million and 25% of the City's general fund to $43 million and 45% of the city's general fund. Explore the impact of these trends on city services and priorities.
