NEW YORK — As Wall Street protesters gear up for another week in lower Manhattan, the cost of constant police surveillance is growing.

The New York Police Department has already spent nearly $2 million, mostly in overtime pay, to patrol the protest in recent weeks.

And with no end in sight, the price tag will continue to rise at a time when Mayor Michael Bloomberg has ordered city agencies to slash budgets.

Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly has said the budget cuts may cause the cancellation of a new class of police officers entering the academy in January.

Protesters planned a march Monday evening. The Rev. Al Sharpton and rapper Kanye (KAHN'-yay) West also made impromptu appearances at the park.
