Dear Gov1 Subscriber,

In top news this week, Pittsburgh is facing a looming public safety crisis: The personnel cuts that will be needed July 1 if further federal pandemic relief funds aren't approved "may prove to be untenable," Pittsburgh Council Budget Director Bill Urbanic told council members last week.

We're also highlighting a recent study that identified both the pervasiveness of mental illness in law enforcement and the barriers officers perceive when seeking needed treatment.
