Cutting police budgets could result in less emergency operators, citizens attempting to handle potentially dangerous situations themselves without trained law enforcement, and a reduction in people reporting crimes in general. For instance in Seattle, where calls to defund the police include a 50% budget cut, 281 civilian employees could be laid off. 911 operators are almost always civilians trained specifically to do that job.
