When we say “defund the police,” what do we really mean?
Here are four concrete steps toward re-envisioning public safety:
- Remove police from scenarios that do not require their presence ⠀
- Reduct funds to response alternatives
- Reduce police department size and scope
- Invest in community-based resources ⠀
Defunding the police means divesting from policing and investing in communities. With these actions, we can move closer to creating real public safety. #DefundThePoliceSTL
