Yes, replace police with unarmed community based responders for non-violent calls

No, but there needs to be increased social workers available, alongside trained police officers.

I feel they shouldn’t take all the money but the community’s would benefit from more programs to help people

@98W9FJCfrom Newfoundland  answered…4 days

Partially, police officers should also have with them trained officers in psychology OR train all officers in psychology and how to handle situations better

@98V69NPfrom Saskatchewan  answered…6 days

The police need to be held accountable for there actions and kept in check rather then find reasons to charge someone but still keep inforcing the law

@98T57V8from British Columbia  answered…1wk

@98T49KWfrom Alberta  answered…1wk

Redirect funding to better suit the communities that are effected. Make better training for police in order to diffuse and better handle situations

@98SRX9Rfrom Alberta  answered…1wk

Provide additional training for officers to promote the use of community policing, then police Would be a social and community based service

@98SL5S5New Democraticfrom British Columbia  answered…1wk

A little maybe, should have for real problems but need to be educated about racialisation and how that effects crime rates

@98RTBB5from New Brunswick  answered…2wks

i feel like we should have the cops and social and community based programs

@98RPW68from Ontario  answered…2wks

I think funding should be distributed amongst the police department and social/community based programs. A collaborative approach should be developed to better respond to a variety of needs in the community.

@98RK2XDfrom Newfoundland  answered…2wks

More funding for social and community based programs while supporting local police

@98RBBP5from Ontario  answered…2wks

In addition to the police force, we need reallocation of funds to ensure the police have only required resources, and other funds are provided to unarmed community based responders for non-violent calls.

@98QKJV7from Ontario  answered…2wks

no, but more funding should be allocated for social and community based programs

@98Q2HH4from Ontario  answered…2wks

@98PYZHLLiberalfrom Ontario  answered…2wks

do not replace police but have the option to call unarmed respinders for non- violent calls

@98PQTLXfrom Ontario  answered…2wks

No, because it would be a waste of government money just by being paid by taxes citizens paid for

@98PPJXCfrom Ontario  answered…2wks

@98PL3W4from Ontario  answered…2wks

We need to have both, safe unarmed police in the community and police for bigger, dangerous issues.

@98P6T3Bfrom Ontario  answered…3wks

If the police departments have extra money they sure. But if not, then don't risk it is the need it suddenly.

@98P34X7Conservativefrom Manitoba  answered…3wks

No! Until Canada addresses the concerns of high rate crime committed it's not feasible at this time.

@98NX3MVLiberalfrom Ontario  answered…3wks

No, but funding should be increased to social workers that can respond along with an officer to a non-violent or low risk call

@98NWJMKfrom Manitoba  answered…3wks

We must crack down on crime and begin prosecuting offenders with harsher penalties, including the death penalty. This involves planning a campaign in schools to uphold moral principles and norms of how people should respect one another. After addressing the concerns, only then can we discuss the enforcement of policing policies.

@98MNHWZfrom Ontario  answered…3wks

Yes, but only some of the police budget should go towards social and community based programs

@98L46LSfrom British Columbia  answered…3wks

@98KGHGHNew Democraticfrom Alberta  answered…4wks

Increase spending to fund non-armed distress responders for unarmed mental crises

@98JTVZCfrom Ontario  answered…4wks

No, increase funding if body cameras and other methods of accountability for officers require it.

@98GLFP2from Alberta  answered…1mo

No, police funding should remain current and social programs should ALSO be funded

@9428PLP from Ohio answered…1mo

Yes, but it should not be radical defunding, and the police system training requires (minor) reforms

@98FW6SKfrom Alberta  answered…1mo

Keep police funding and provide better training, while also investing in social programs.

@98FVRQ9from Alberta  answered…1mo

Yes, with integrated social and psychological professionals in co-response to various community crimes

@98FPFSYLiberalfrom British Columbia  answered…1mo

It shouldn't be an "either-or" thing. If police departments need the funding to hire and retain staff, as well as give support, we should do that if it's in the community's best interests. But, we can also have community-based programs to reduce recidivism, as well as keep people from going to crime, as it is a good thing additionally for the community. But regardless, it depends on the community.

@98F8C34Liberalfrom Ontario  answered…1mo

@98F3SC5from Alberta  answered…1mo

Funding within the police department should remain, but use funding to educate and properly train officers to be better equipped in all situations, this includes; those with mental illnesses, disabilities and other means of intervention that is not physical.

@98DX84Dfrom British Columbia  answered…1mo

@98DMT97from Alberta  answered…2mos

We Need to both maintain the police force and allow those in areas with high crime rates to get into the position where the root of the problem is solved and give all Canadians access to affordable goods.

@98CXC9CLiberalfrom Saskatchewan  answered…2mos

@98CQBLHfrom Ontario  answered…2mos

Yes, but put it towards helping understand culture and to not be racist.
