Following the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery at the hands of law enforcement officers, protests for police reform have broken out in all fifty states as well as internationally. The concept of police reform is not new, but it has gained considerable attention in recent years. Police reforms often call of a variety of changes; including limiting qualified immunity, implementing citizen review boards, and creating more precise policies on use of force. Among the ideas for police reform is defunding the police. What “defunding the police” means varies from person-to-person and thus county-to-county, state-to-state, and department-to-department. The following presentation explains the various definitions and actions associated with defunding the police and case examples of defunded police departments. This presentation will also cover managing employees when tense conversations over police reform enter the workplace; whether they occur in the workplace or over social media.
