Hour 1: Dr. Patrick Oliver: Defunding the Police

A call for police reform around the nation has arisen following the death of George Floyd.  Some state and federal politicians are calling for police departments across the United States to be defunded and dismantled. What could be some of the implications if police departments were defunded and dismantled? How would this impact 9-1-1 services, or other services Americans have come to rely on?? On Friday, Ken and Deb visit with professor Patrick Oliver from Cedarville University about the ideas being discussed and what some of the outcomes of these changes would be in our cities and communities.
