Just,
how you can cut an agency's funding without downsizing being a direct result. When funding is cut there's only 3 places it can come from, by not replacing equipment when it's damaged or aged out, the training budget (less training for LEO's is not a good idea) and salaries (the only way to cut salaries is cut salaries which means you get paid less than previous, not hire replacements when openings occur or cut personnel numbers.
If you know a way to cut funding without less officers on the street being a direct result, I'd love to hear how.

Violent crime is at a 5 year high in Minneapolis There have been 41 homicides there so far this year compared to 28 in the same time frame in 2020,

The GOP moves in and the neighborhood falls apart.

Even in Minneapolis the citizens say more POLICE are needed A Hennepin County District Court judge has ordered the city of Minneapolis to hire more police officers. This comes in response to a lawsuit .
Notice the judge said POLICE officers not social workers Citizens filed a lawsuit to put more Police on the street

So defund or downsize the police in exchange hire social workers who will need to be protected or escorted by the police. Sounds like a lovely Idea. And maybe buy every one a pony to .

Why does it have to be either or? Why not both when a dispatcher even has questions.

Well you see in America its none of any body's business as long as the purchase was legal and no laws are broken. Sorta like why anybody needs a corvette that can do 150mph when the speed is 70.

Historically they have never had a tradition of citizens owing firearms like the US, But again that's one of the reasons we asked them to leave the US
