Center for Research on Social Change affiliated faculty Nikki Jones was a recent guest on KQED's Forum with Michael Krasny, talking about what it means to “defund police.” One idea is to divert money from police departments into social services that can prevent crime and address its causes. Proponents say cities need to radically overhaul their systems of policing after years of failed reform efforts.
