Bill King explains what ‘defunding police departments’ really means


Criminal justice professor Bill King in the School of Public Service recently was interviewed by KTVB about what “defunding police departments” actually means.

From the article: “Dr. Bill King, a professor of criminal justice at Boise State, says while taking money away from police departments would be part of the plan, the goal would actually be to shift money to other resources. Dr. King said this isn’t the first time we’ve seen a shift, or at least a call for one, in how America polices itself.”
