1. Well, we have already seen examples of cities with less police and less gang activity. Toronto and Chicago have similar population sizes, and the greater Toronto area (GTA) is number one for gang homicides. It had 36 gang related homicides in 2018. The TPS has 5400 uniformed and undercover officers.
Chicago has 12,000 officers, and had approximately 250 gang related homicides in 2018.
Looks like you could reduce cops by half and also reduce gang violence sevenfold.
Of course, Chicago would have to invest funds in order to address those social issues that Chicago has that Toronto does not.
