Increase to Base Budget • The department requests that, at a minimum in the next fiscal year, it be fully funded at the 90 officer benchmarked standard as determined by the Florida legislature based on a staffing needs assessment following the Danny Rolling murders here in Gainesville in the early 1990’s. The total cost for this addition is $401,672, and it is recurring. • The department requests that the committee carefully consider the following timeline of facts and make whatever financial commitment it can, now and in the near future, to fund an additional 8 law enforcement positions to compensate for the increased demand placed on the department since 1992. The recurring cost of this increase is approximately $485,000, and startup expenses of approximately $130,000.
