Policing in California

Virtual Event

November 4, 2021 · 11:00 am - 12:00 pm


About the Program

Recent debates over police reform have centered on how law enforcement officers engage with the communities they serve—and ways to increase transparency and accountability. PPIC’s Magnus Lofstrom and Deepak Premkumar will discuss key takeaways from new research that examines law enforcement stops, use of force and misconduct, and the stark racial disparities in police interactions.

This event is supported with funding from Arnold Ventures.
