General Fund

18% of San Francisco's 2019 – 2020 General Fund was spent on law enforcement (SFPD & Sheriff's).
A general fund is a city’s primary account, funded by taxes (like property and sales tax) and used to pay for services such as the fire department, public works, parks, community services and more.

In comparison

Here are some examples of 2019 – 2020 budget items that received less funding than law enforcement:

SFPD & Sheriff's
SFMTA: Transit Services division
Homelessness services
Public library
