8. That is what I have seen in

Proposals made here as well.

In the case of a domestic violence call, social workers (you) will be called first and sent to the scene without police to calm the situation. If you are unable to calm it, then you would call for police support, unless they have been abolished.

If there are no police no would call a community response team. This group, likely unarmed, will gather in whatever organization is established and join you. Once there they will do something. Sorry to be so vague but details in the various proposals have not really spelled out what the post-police world will look like. It seems to be assumed that with better social programs, most crime will disappear.
