IB Poll
Do you support efforts to "defund" police departments in Madison and elsewhere, diverting those funds away from traditional policing and into social programs that invest in education, youth development, and mental health services, among other areas of need?
A. Yes, I think trying to help people in need of these services before they're seen as criminals by law enforcement would be a better use of public funds.
B. I think we should go further and disband police departments, like what happened in Camden, New Jersey, and start from scratch with true community policing.
C. No, the police are often outnumbered and outgunned already. Taking resources away from them only hurts efforts to crack down on crime and create safer communities.

Results from last week's poll question:
As protests against police brutality and racial injustice continue across the U.S. and now globally, what do you think the role of your employer is in continuing this conversation?
All employers should be questioning themselves about their own racial biases and making renewed efforts to be anti-racist, diverse, and inclusive.  
Social issues, like politics and religion, don't belong in the workplace and are only divisive when we should be focused on getting the economy back on track.
