Cops and Community

6:00 PM 8:00 PM
Robert J. Mohart Multi-Purpose Center Facility

What causes the tension that exists between many neighborhoods and the officers who patrol them? In a season when violence has sometimes erupted, tempers have flared and police programs emphasizing community relationships have diminished, this discussion explores the historic and present-day relationships among law enforcement officers and all the citizens they are sworn to serve. How are local communities responding to national anxiety about the role of police? And what models will work to ensure safety, justice and peace in the streets?
