FRANK Talks: Modern Policing or a Police State?
August 24, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pmFree
Body Cameras, Tasers and Guns: Modern Policing or a Police State?
Michael Scott, Arizona State University, Clinical Professor, Director of Center for Problem-Oriented Policing, School of Criminology & Criminal Justice
The methods and tools used by police officers today are not the same as in the past. In some cases the police are using military tools and tactics for law enforcement. Are the police really protecting the public, or are they over-policing civilians? Is there a “war on police” that is chilling local law enforcement? Are public demands for independent investigations of police violence, demilitarized police forces, and an end to “for-profit” policing justified? Join us for a FRANK Talk with local police.
