How do police departments get funding?
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.

Usually by the government.

It depends on the particular department. The general opinion among police officers is that the term is used too much and is used as a weapon by criminals and people with agend…as. Usually, there is an internal affairs or professional standards office within the department. They investigate ALL police shootings to determine if they were justified, and any complaints from the general public. Law enforcement's answer to police brutality is often to turn the other cheek. This is commonly known as the "Blue Wall of Silence" which unfortunately happens way too often.
Yes, with the exception of privatised security/guard forces. Your town/city, county, state, and federal law enforcement agencies are all government agencies which are funded b…y taxpayers. Private security forces are typically financed by a company whose property they secure, either as a direct subsidiary of that company, or as a third party contractor.
