FRANK TALKS: The History of Police and Policing in the U.S

Event Type: Adult
Age Group(s): Adults
Date: 2/18/2021
Start Time: 11:00 AM
End Time: 12:00 PM
Description:
 What is the history of policing in the U.S.? Where did police come from, and what was their role? How did police interact with communities in the past? How do police interact with communities now? Recent clashes between the police and the public have thrust the nation into a period of social unrest and violence not seen since the 1960s. The public has called for immediate and dramatic change. Do we still need the police? How do communities ensure public safety in the future for everyone? Participants will explore these questions in a safe, interactive discussion, that will help them understand and improve the relationship between the police and community. Registration required.
