WE PARTNER WITH COMMUNITIES AND POLICE TO PROMOTE PUBLIC SAFETY THROUGH TRANSPARENCY, EQUITY, AND DEMOCRATIC ENGAGEMENT.
Our Focus Areas:
The Albany Community Police Advisory Committee facilitates community involvement with the police department by hosting public meetings and forums where residents can discuss community issues and express their concerns.
How do we know what works in policing and what doesn’t? Often, the answer is, “We don’t.” As Policing Project Faculty Director Barry Friedman and extern Kate Mather explain in a new editorial for Just Security, evidence-based policing is still a niche approach struggling to find its place in mainstream law enforcement.
In a report produced with the Policing Project, Axon’s AI and Policing Technology Ethics Board concluded that face recognition technology is not yet reliable enough to justify its use on body-worn cameras, and expressed particular concern regarding evidence of unequal and unreliable performance across races, ethnicities, genders and other identity groups.
Our Youth-Police Engagement Program ended the year with an informative and action-packed day at the Camden County Regional Emergency Training Center—where the students experienced a day in the life of an officer in training.
The Policing Project is proud to announce that Senior Program Manager Regina Holloway has been selected as a 2019 Atlantic Fellow for Racial Equity, joining a cohort of 20 leaders from across South Africa and the United States who are working to build a more equitable world.
