SF mayor says police will stop responding to non-criminal calls-inserting social workers

San Francisco Mayor London Breed on Thursday said police will no longer respond to non-criminal calls as part of a major reform of the department.

Breed said in a news release that for calls that don’t involve a threat to public safety, police would be replaced by trained, unarmed professionals to limit unnecessary confrontation between the police department and the community.

As part of police reforms, San Francisco will also strengthen accountability policies, ban the use of military-grade weapons and divert funding to the African-American community, Breed said.

The reforms did not specify exactly how the city would fund its new policy or how it will be implemented.
