Sprawlcast: Who’s policing the Calgary police?

The Sprawlcast's Jeremy Klaszus interviewed me about policing in Calgary.



"I always looked at it as a reallocation across the system, a redistribution to create better equity in the system of care. Better mental health supports, better supports for people who find themselves unhoused and live with housing insecurity. Better health supports for people who find themselves suffering from the opioid epidemic. Better supports for people who are suffering from poverty before they ever find themselves in the situation where they need to go to crime. And policing for those who end up in crime and we still need a reactive force, a reactive service. That’s a strong system. When those systems are equitably funded."

A transcript is available on the Sprawl's website.
