Portland Police have been paid more than $5.3 million in overtime during the ongoing protests and riots against police brutality, which have rocked the city for more than 60 consecutive nights since the May 25 death of George Floyd in Minnesota.

Portland Police Bureau’s overtime through July 22 cost taxpayers $5,351,383, KPTV-FOX 12 Oregon reported, and officers have garnered a collective compensation time costing roughly $1.2 million, both of which are on top of officers’ regular salaries.

July 22 was the last day of the department’s most recent pay period.

On Thursday, members from Oregon State Police replaced the federal agents who moved out of Portland’s downtown area, where they had been guarding the Mark O. Hatfield U.S. Federal Courthouse and the Justice Center despite heavy criticism from city and elected officials.
