Hello,
Thank you so much for your prompt response! This does not appear to incorporate COVID-19 cuts as described in the powerpoint submitted by the Department to the Mayor here: https://sf.gov/sites/default/files/2020-02/Police_Proposed%20Budget_FY21%20and%20FY22.pdf.

Does the request for ~$736 million total /$629 million from general fund (FY 2020-2021) on pg 177 represent the budget request after "COVID-19 cuts" (the 10% cuts across all Departments across the City)?

Best,
A.T.
