A Tempe motorcycle officer makes his way through a protest that started at Daly Park and ended on Hayden Lawn Oct. 13. Tempe spent $76,000 worth of police overtime for the debate.
Every officer in the Tempe police department available for duty on the day of the Oct. 13 presidential debate worked in some capacity, forcing the city to spend $76,642 on overtime salaries, said Tempe police Sgt. Dan Masters.

Masters said payroll for the extra 171 officers totaled $68,347. The department also utilized 39 civilians from Oct. 12 to Oct. 14 adding more than $8,000 to the week's total payroll.

Maricopa County officials have said about 12,000 doses are available this year due to a national shortage, which means fewer vaccines will be available to students.
