WATCH: Oakland restores millions in funding to police after surge in crime

Oakland City Council restored $10 million in funding to the police and fire departments after a surge in crime following defunding the police.

Homicides, Shootings, Carjackings and Robberies are all up since 2020.

Chief Leronne Armstrong said the “tremendous increase” in violence in Oakland has “contributed to the great need for additional police resources.”
