Reimagining Public Safety: Alternative Ideas for Fundamental Change

The Alternative Ideas for Fundamental Change virtual panel will discuss necessary reforms for reinventing public safety in America. These include fundamental structural changes in the ways police are hired and trained, reorienting the culture and incentive structures in police departments to reward building community trust, and transforming the manner of policing from a warrior to a sentinel style. Some of these reforms are already in effect in some jurisdictions, and being considered in others. We will discuss key considerations and obstacles for these proposals and address misconceptions and misleading narratives regarding such reforms.

Date: Friday, November 13, 2020
Time: 12 - 1:15 PM ET
