Following the unprecedented events of 2020, many communities are calling for police reform—a concept that covers a host of topics, from de-escalation to qualified immunity. But are these calls for reform based on form over substance? Will the desired reforms make the desired changes if they are not founded on law, evidence-based practices and science?

Law enforcement agencies must be an engaged partner in these discussions and how they impact agency policies and training. Changes that are rushed or create unrealistic expectations will ultimately do nothing to foster trust between police and community members. But it’s equally essential that law enforcement agencies take the initiative to make needed changes. 

This webinar series will cover three critical topics in police reform. All events are free and open to law enforcement and interested community members. We will take attendee questions on a time-available basis at the end of each event.
