Default Defund the Police - Serious Question

A call for reforms, training, changes to laws/policies are likely needed but the call to reform the police will lead to a replacement with what?

I doubt you will find many who want their property and possessions destroyed or stolen, their family or themselves harmed so what is the viable option? Private security? The more affluent in many cases already pay for additional security measures but those 'protesting' will be the least likely to afford the new model. I seriously doubt any state, county or municipality would give up their ability to use force to enforce their will on the citizens or completely subjugate it to a private entity, so where does that leave the Defund the Police supporters?
