De-policing is an Americanism for a police industrial action strategy of a work place slowdown. A slowdown is an industrial action in which employees perform their duties but seek to reduce productivity or efficiency in their performance of these duties. A slowdown may be used as either a prelude or an alternative to a strike, as it is seen as less disruptive as well as less risky and costly for workers and their union.

In her book, The War on Cops, Heather Mac Donald uses the term as the antithesis for pro-active policing in general.
