Overtime up for Wausau police

by

WAUSAU, Wis (WSAU)   Police overtime is rising in Wausau. It's a potential budget-buster for the police department and the city.

Police chief Jeff Hardell says there are many factors that determine whether overtime is needed. Some depend on police officers who are injured, sick, or on maternity leave. Other factors include the number of investigations or special events .

Last year police logged 9,511 hours of overtime at a cost of $300,000.

Wausau PD has 72 officers.
