Event topic:

The last few years have brought greater public awareness to the state of policing, including police officers’ relationships with local communities, internal dynamics and policies within police departments, and the public call for increased transparency. Hear from two Northeastern University experts, Professor Jack McDevitt and Professor Amy Farrell, as they share research into the reforms sweeping through police departments across the country. Our speakers will have a robust conversation about the movement towards increased accountability in policing and the impacts on both communities and police departments.
