TUCSON, Ariz. -- The Occupy Tucson movement is still going strong.

And the city says, for now, it has no plans to stop the cite and release enforcement at Veinte de Agosto Park.

So far the Tucson Police Department has issued 505 citations.

And TPD says not arresting protesters has saved taxpayers almost $130,000.

But the Occupy movement has come at a cost for police.

As of Monday, November 7, the department has spent more than $83,000 on overtime.
