Defunding the Police and Consequences

One of the big undercover stories of the year is the escape of current and potential police officers from across the country. A case study is what’s happening in Evanston, Illinois, a Chicago suburb of about 78,000, which announced this month that it will be reviewing police responses to crimes.

Evanston was one of many cities that voted to cut the police’s operating budget in the wake of the murder George Floyd– up 5.36% in 2021. “Just because we didn’t have George Floyd or Breonna Taylor doesn’t mean what we have will work,” Evanston Alderman Cicely Fleming explained in 2020, according to the Daily Northwestern.
