RACE AND POLICING: State and Local Perspectives
Monday, March 27, 2017
Building on two previous Forums about race, criminal justice and health (from February 2015 and October 2015), this event examined specific approaches and models to address the complexities of race and policing. Experts in law enforcement, public health, community relations and the law will speak. Subjects will include safeguarding law enforcement and communities, promoting more effective communication and de-escalation techniques, and narrowing the social, economic and health gaps that persist between underserved and middle-class America. The emphasis was on local and state approaches.
Part of: Policy Controversies.
