Facts should always trump politics! 

The San Antonio Police Officers Association wants nothing more than a fair and responsible negotiating process with the City. Unfortunately, the City Manager continues to undermine the unique contribution of San Antonio police officers by issuing misleading budget figures as a financial scare tactic to influence the public and our City Council.

But, as John Adams famously said, “Facts are stubborn things; and what ever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passions, they can not alter the state of facts, and evidence.”

And when it comes to the facts about the public safety budget, here are two important ones:

  • San Antonio ranks 82nd out of the top 100 cities in the nation on police spending per resident.
  • San Antonio has one of the best police departments in nation because we have learned to do more, for less, without sacrificing your family’s safety.

The facts prove that it’s not the San Antonio police budget threatening the city budget, and if the City is indeed facing financial difficulties under her watch, the City Manager needs to stop using public safety as a scapegoat.
