To Protect and Serve:
Changing the Culture of Policing
Part of the UB Law in Focus Discussion Series
We are all horrified by the deaths of African American men and women in police custody. What is it about the police culture that leads to this level of aggression toward people of color, and what can we do to change it? What are the challenges police departments face in these racially charged times, from recruiting to training to discipline, and what can they do to improve accountability and build trust with the communities they serve? On June 9, 2020, Kim Neal, J.D. '97, UBalt Law Prof. F. Michael Higginbotham, and UBalt Law Prof. J. Amy Dillard addressed these issues. UBalt School of Law Dean Ronald Weich moderated the discussion.
