Description: Recent events on the national stage such as the events in Ferguson and Baltimore, combined with media images of officers atop armored vehicles, dressed in military fatigues and armed with rifles, have thrust the issue of police-community relations to the national spotlight. With the public demanding increased legitimacy and accountability from law enforcement agencies, how do police executives develop and support a culture of policing that reinforces the importance of community engagement in managing public safety — while also enhancing officer morale?
Join the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) for this upcoming Research for the Real World seminar where forward-looking figures in the law enforcement community discuss their contributions to the Executive Session on Policing and Public Safety and examine how law enforcement can be improved through the adoption of community-minded policies.
This seminar is free, but you must RSVP to gain access to the OJP building. Please allow 20 minutes to get through security.
