New York City Mayor Eric Adams said he would consider excluding the New York City Police Department from a citywide cost-cutting measure that he is implementing across all government agencies. 

In hist first weeks in office, Adams asked all city departments to cut non-personnel spending by 3% as New York prepares to balance its $98.7 billion budget without a continued flow of federal aid money.
