Increasing police patrols in Seattle crime hot spots

Question the money

According to the recent article in The Seattle Times, the money being used to extend police patrols comes from “better-than-expected city revenues.” [“McGinn taps $400K to boost patrols in crime hot spots,” page one, Aug. 16.]

What does that mean? Where else would or could it have been spent? It seems like there should be room for some discussion about those numbers.
