The San Diego Association of Governments released a study today indicating that the region’s population increased at more than twice the rate of public safety staffing in the past 10 years.

The study also shows that funding for law enforcement has increased an average of 17 percent during that time, due primarily to rising contributions to retirement funds.

And if you’re someone who wonders, What do I really get for my tax dollars?, it might be interesting to know that on average, $448 is allocated to public safety per San Diegan.
