# NYPD Departmental 2015 Budget ANALYSIS

Description
ONLY USE THE DOCUMENT ATTACHED TO ANSWER THE 6 QUESTIONS. NO OUTSIDE SOURCES TO BE USED. EXAMPLES AND EXPLANATIONS AT THE BOTTOM.
Questions:
1.- What was the NYPD’s total budget in the Fiscal 2015 Preliminary Plan (discoverable in the article). Write the amount 3 ways, as presented in the document; as it’s true value (see note in the budget as to the true value of the numbers; and as we would present this number in words—ok to round off to one or two decimals (i.e. \$ 5.5 thousand, or \$4.76 billion)………… ………………Note—for those who want to check their format—for 2012, the amounts are: \$4, 867,892; \$4,867,892,000; and \$4.87 billion
2.- What were the top three programs in appropriations as a percentage of the total budget? This is a form of financial analysis where the program budget is presented as a percentage of the total budget (see handouts on Vertical and Horizontal Analysis)
3.- In light of the recent trends in major felony crimes (FY ’11 to FY ’14) has the Plan adequately addressed this trend? Explain
4.- Where does the NYPD obtain most of its funding? Express this funding source as a percentage of total annual funding from actual FY ’12 to FY ’15 of the Plan. Identify the line items, and the percentages (and reference the page where this info is obtained).
5.- In the Preliminary FY 2015, how many full time positions are anticipated? (page 3) What are the totals for the 3 categories, and what % of the total positions are either Civilian, Uniform, or FTE? Can we compare the number of positions relative to the total budget? What is the cost per position?
6.- What is the population of NYC? If the department costs were allocated equally to all NYC residents–what is the dollar amount? This is an annual amount. What would it be per day? Per week? Why would one want to think about these numbers in this way?
EXPLANATION AND EXAMPLES
Using Percentages
Here is some clarification and commentary on using a percentage—which is a great way to compare financial change. However–it requires not just the percentage of change–but also the amounts of money involved–so we know what that % really means–See below.
If something goes up 10%–from \$100 to \$110–very easy for everyone to do in their head. But if we are just told that something went up 10%–what is the scale? It is missing. Very different 10% of \$1,000 and 10% of \$100,000.
