In what context can I use the word "redirect"? and how's it different from "shift"?
In this context, "shift" and "redirect" can both be used without changing the meaning of the sentence. "Redirect" means to switch or change direction (from its original direction), so we can understand the speaker saying it here to indicate $8 million dollars of the police budget will be shifted or moved away (in a new direction) to other programs and services. Ex: There is an accident up ahead, so the GPS redirected to a different direction. Ex: I'd like to redirect our company's food fund to be used for mental health instead.
