Reduce the police funding partially (maximum by 5%) to fund specialists who can deal with non-violent calls in a better way than the police.

@9Z3C8LDBloc Québécoisfrom Ontario  answered…1mo

Only fund the police for their NEEDS, like guns and bulletproof items for safety and hire people that help rehabilitate criminals.

@9YNQ2HWPeople’s Partyfrom Quebec  answered…2mos

No, I think the funding should be more balanced between the two however there should be more police training for higher crime rate situations.

@9YN26MRLiberalfrom New Brunswick  answered…2mos

Increasing funding and training of mental health and social interaction, as well as de escalation training of law enforcement personal.

@9XZ97L4New Democraticfrom Ontario  answered…3mos

They should even it out. Keep the police, and add more mental health specialists.

@9XPJVYJNew Democraticfrom Nova Scotia  answered…3mos

Not necessarily. However, the police need the ability to serve search warrants when needed and otherwise have additional ability to act/serve. They should be trained in racial, ethnic, social and other community-based issues.

@9XG4R4GLiberalfrom Nova Scotia  answered…4mos

No but have there be more training and undergoing consequences

@9WNYH95Rhinocerosfrom British Columbia  answered…4mos

with the ever-increasing crime in the province, we need the police,e or some type of police. However,r they need more training to handle things like a mental health issue,s and they also need to feel their job is not being degraded by judges and crown counsel letting people off with no to extremely light sentences for the crimes they commit

@9WJH76CRhinocerosfrom Ontario  answered…4mos

The whole structure maintaining the police force(their training, their funding, their protection, their understanding) should be reformed. The police force has become too ridiculous to even answer this.

@9WJBD5BRhinocerosfrom Manitoba  answered…4mos

Funding should go towards better mental health, and conflict resolution training for officers. As well as preventing racial profiling or biases towards BIPOC.

@9WHPMLXRhinocerosfrom Manitoba  answered…4mos

Yes, and police should be better trained as to what their job really is. When l was little it was ‘to serve and protect’. Nowadays it’s ‘to intimidate and harass’.

@9WGJQS9Liberalfrom Alberta  answered…4mos

Create additional resource officers who are specifically for community outreach and mental health. Sometimes it be how the community doing, not what the community doing

Don't "redirect" funding, but rather increase funding towards an complete overhaul of the police, mental health, social work, and community response system

@9W6D2NTRhinocerosfrom Ontario  answered…5mos

More funding for social and community services but don’t totally defund police.

@9VXFVJCConservativefrom Alberta  answered…5mos

No, but the mandate of police should be expanded to include more of a social welfare element. Also, this is an issue of provincial jurisdiction.

@9VXCGWSGreenfrom Alberta  answered…5mos

Not about making a choice between the two and having them work in tandem together
