Crime is exploding across America. Defunding the police is causing even more chaos and increased crime in communities where we live, work, and raise our families.
Defunding the police ironically requires more police officers to work overtime, which costs taxpayers more money... and leads to decreased officer morale, increased burnout, and unfortunately more mistakes.
Defunding the police strips our officers of much-needed training and resources, such as de-escalation, use of force, and cultural awareness training. Furthermore, the scheme to remove less-lethal options will simply result in more fatal police shootings.
