Abstract: Recent police violence in the United States has caused a mass reexamining of therole and function of police in our society. This project is an exploration into the policeabolition movement, where the history is examined and recent developments areconsidered. The main tenets of the police abolition movement are disinvestment of fundsfrom police budgets, and reinvestments of those funds into social programs andcommunity development. Analysis of cities and other jurisdictions where these tenetshave been implemented is used to show that police abolition is not only possible, butnecessary in our ever developing society.
