“Why isn’t the state legislature concerned about Provo’s increase in property crime among the highest in the nation? Is it because 12 of Utah’s 29 senators represent portions of Salt Lake City and NINE SENATORS exclusively represent Salt Lake City? Should Salt Lake City be entitled to $67 million dollars in STATE funding for their LOCAL police? Why did all the legislators not representing Salt Lake City vote for this? “Salt Lake City appears not to have seen a similar spike, according to the city’s online crime database, but final 2016 numbers for individual Utah cities will not be available until early next year, according to Marissa Cote, director of public relations for the Utah Department of Public Safety.”
