An end to traffic stops, street outreach teams, unionized sex workers and burglaries resolved by restorative justice: The vision of BLM activists for how to defund and replace traditional police

Black Lives Matter activists pushing to 'defund the police' have proposed plans to replace officers with social workers, mental health advocates and homeless charities.

Their chants called for widespread disbanding of U.S. police departments after Minneapolis councilors voted to abolish the city's police force in an historic move after days of protests over the killing of George Floyd during an arrest.

However supporters of 'defund the police' say their demands are not necessarily about eliminating police departments or stripping agencies of all of their money.

They say it is time for the country to address systemic problems in policing in America and spend more on what communities across the U.S. need, like housing and education.
