Decriminalize Seattle is pushing a plan to the Seattle city council that proposes reallocating funds from the police department to community organizations, and a majority of city council members back the plan.
The plan would slash funding to the Seattle Police Department by $200 million and would replace the current 911 system with a civilian controlled system and would put more money into social service programs.
If the proposed plan goes through the Seattle Police Department would see a loss of 1000 jobs.
“I think it’s rash and irrational to make that decision without having a thoughtful conversation with community members, and I’m hoping that the City Council will rethink the plan to do that — without having a plan for how we’re going to re-envision policing and how it will work.”
– Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best
