Whether your community is urban, suburban, or rural, headlines abound with stories of anxious, dangerous or even deadly encounters between law enforcement and civilians. While there remains much respect for police officers and the difficulty of their work, tensions with communities across the country have been on the rise. Join us for a conversation between Justin Fenton, Crime Reporter, The Baltimore Sun; Wesley Lowery, National Correspondent, The Washington Post; Rebecca Neusteter, Director of Policing, Vera Institute of Justice; and Vesla Weaver, Bloomberg Distinguished Associate Professor, Johns Hopkins University that will touch on the history of law enforcement, effective models of community policing, and the role of both police and the public in this heightened time of mistrust in law enforcement. A member of the law enforcement community will also join the panel. Moderated by Andrew Green of The Baltimore Sun.
Free, but reservations required. Seating is limited. Please arrive early as any seats remaining when the program begins will be open to walk-up attendees.
Presented in partnership with Maryland Humanities.
