From The Public Purpose :
There has not been vocalized opposition to this bill, but the argument against police reform has generally centered on the fear that crime will rise . The proposed legislation contains mandates to measure how qualified approaches compare to traditional carceral models, so data could refute or confirm that claim. Some conservative groups have expressed support  for moving criminal justice systems away from arrest and incarceration to reduce crime and conserve government resources.
