HOUSTON, Texas The city of Houston will spend an extra $24 million on police overtime in the next three years while boosting the number of officers on the streets by more than 500 in that period, Mayor Bill White said today.

The overtime money will finance more than 500,000 hours of police work through the fiscal year that ends in July 2010, White said.
