Program

Police shootings across the country continue to raise questions about the relationship between police departments and the communities they are charged with protecting. Today, the L.A. Police Department is considering new use-of-force policies that emphasize deescalation concepts. Join us for a discussion about

  • fair and impartial policing of different minority and ethnic groups;
  • technologies like body cameras aimed at making policing safer and more transparent;
  • how behavioral health training for officers is working;
  • how officer-involved shootings are handled in the courts.
