DEKALB, Ill. - Despite a tight economy, DeKalb County found enough money this year to expand its Police Department by more than 10 percent.
In a close vote Tuesday on the $635 million budget for 2008, county commissioners slashed spending on technology, lawyers and other functions and drew on emergency funds to pay for 127 new police officers.
