Senior Vice President National Policing Institute, United States
The most critical issue facing the policing profession today is learning how to building trust with the communities officers serve. Join us to view a short documentary of three Black police leaders as they walked the historic 54-mile civil rights walk from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama. Along their journey, they reflect on what it means to be Black men, law enforcement leaders, and Americans who believe in a future where justice is colorblind and police are catalysts for racial equality. Following the film, panelists discuss the development of a new training curriculum that will assist police executives as they have difficult conversations, support officers, promote diversity in policing, and improve relationships with communities.
