WE PARTNER WITH COMMUNITIES AND POLICE TO PROMOTE PUBLIC SAFETY THROUGH TRANSPARENCY, EQUITY, AND DEMOCRATIC ENGAGEMENT.
Our Focus Areas:
The American Law Institute council on policing approved several new chapters of Principles of Law, Policing at its most recent convening in January.
Our national field research project continues with a visit to Stockton, California, a city that responded to its policing challenges by implementing a focus on procedural justice.
Our director Barry Friedman was at the Ford School of Public Policy for this wide-ranging conversation examining ways to reduce racially-motivated encounters between police and citizens.
Developed for the Institute for Innovation in Prosecution’s officer-involved fatalities toolkit, the Policing Project’s new Use-Of-Force Policy Guidelines outline best practices for communities and PDs looking to minimize uses of force.
Practical recommendations for members of the public on how to approach filming the police and for officers on how to respond to photographers.
