Social workers are so backlogged that it can take a week or more to respond to urgent 911 calls. Police reform may have support but making people’s lives demonstrably worse seems cruel and regressive.

I wrote articles supporting social workers responding to 911 calls. I believe that cops can’t be all things to all people.
The pushback from the law enforcement community was immense. They thought I was suggesting that the funds should come from their budgets, which was impossible if cities were going to do it right.
Cops believed it wouldn’t be done correctly and that the public would be at greater risk.
Many believed that cities and states would do it on the cheap without attention to detail. They were right, at least in this instance.
