How We Police in America: A Case for Reform
A discussion on current policing practices, the need for reform, and why we need front-end accountability.

In his book Unwarranted: Policing Without Permission, Barry Friedman argues that we have misunderstood what accountability means around policing. Rather than involving the public in policing on the front end, as we do in the rest of government, we try to fix things on the back end after they go wrong. This will be a lively discussion on current policing practices, the need for reform, and why we need front-end accountability.
