How Much Does Your State Spend on the Police?

And what else could that money buy?

In FY 2017, spent
on their police forces.

With that money, you could:
  • Put people through a residential drug abuse treatment program
  • Provide a year of childcare to infants and toddlers
  • Pay for meals for SNAP recipients
  • Forgive $50,000 in student loan debt to Americans
  • Put women through the Nurse-Family Partnership program for a year
  • Serve free lunches through the National School Lunch Program
  • Purchase full PPE for healthcare workers
