That's what opponents to "defund the police" don't understand.
Exactly. They don't want the cops to do work that mental health specialists can handle better than them with less deaths and drama.
They prefer a softer approach than a militarized police approach needing insane amounts of financing to bulldoze through everything, creating more problems than they solve.
The vast majority of the time what you need isn't overwhelming force, but a smarter, calmer approach.
They also argue that you don't need to send the police for most of the communities calls, let the police handle the real crimes other people can't deal with, some emergencies are better handled by other specialists. For example the last thing a person in psychological distress ( or a non-neurotypical ) needs is a gun pointed at their head, or a bullet in the chest.
If the US citizens had just taken one minute, just one minute to listen to their demands instead of jumping to conclusions with false assumptions, they would know that already.
And as a Canadian who can witness that this kind of approach works, I'm with their demands 100%.
Those of us "non-mouth breathers" understand that Black Lives Matter doesn't mean only Black Lives Matter, we know why Colin Kaepernick knelt and that defund the police doesn't mean shut down the police.
