Reimagining Public Safety: The Police and Community Perspectives


The Police and Community Perspectives panel will discuss the critical issue of rebuilding trust between the police and the communities they are sworn to protect. The foundations of policing in the U.S. have fractured in fundamental ways, and trust must be repaired so that community members and law enforcement see themselves as authentic partners in public safety, rather than adversaries. We will discuss current research in this area as well as evidence-based alternatives and community policing models.
