Police departments are funded by the governmental body that authorized their creation, such as city, county, and state governments. (Money from fines help fund the governmental body.) They also receive funding through state and federal grants, especially for particular projects like "click-it-or-ticket" and "drink,drive/go-to-jail." These types of grants fund the hiring of additional officers and/or overtime needed to carry out these projects. President Clinton created a project called something like "100,000 cops on the street" that was supposed to provide funding for an additional 100,000 cops for a period of time. Unfortunately, it created more of a burden than did good. If state law permits, police departments can also use seized money or property.
