Police in Boston, Los Angeles, Chicago and other cities are taking extra precautions as a result of fatal attacks on officers in Dallas and Baton Rouge. The New York Police Department said its officers will patrol in pairs for the foreseeable future.
Ronnie Lowenstein, director of New York City’s Independent Budget Office, said, as a result, they're expecting an increase in overtime.
“We will see that, if it does, show up in the numbers over the next few months,” she said.
But she also said it’s too early to know if extra patrol officers will mean more overtime.
