Description

The second discussion in The Challenges of 21st Century Policing series will focus on constitutional policing and police accountability. Constitutional policing is considered a fundamental component of community policing that focuses on protecting the public's rights and providing equal protection under the law.

The panel will also examine best practices in public safety recruitment, training, and operations, with a particular focus on strategies to promote fair policing strategies and avoid inappropriate use of force and racial bias.

The panelists for this discussion are:

  • Nancy La Vigne, vice president for justice policy at the Urban Institute
  • Christy Lopez, distinguished visitor from practice at Georgetown Law School; former deputy chief in the Special Litigation Section of the Civil Rights Division at the U.S. Department of Justice
  • Vesla Weaver, Bloomberg Distinguished Associate Professor of Political Science and Sociology at Johns Hopkins University and a 2016-2017 Andrew Carnegie Fellow

The conversation will be moderated by Daniel Webster, professor of Health Policy and Management at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health; director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Gun Policy and Research; and co-director of the Johns Hopkins Center for the Prevention of Youth Violence.

Lunch will be available at 11 a.m., and the event will start at 11:30 a.m.
