Community policing discussed at WSU

“Community Policing: Building Trust, Reducing Violence” will be the topic addressed by experts during the Arthur L. Johnson Urban Perspectives Lecture Series at Wayne State University on Monday, Oct. 26.

The event is scheduled from noon to 1 p.m. at the Spencer M. Partrich Auditorium.

Increasing tension in the interactions between U.S. police departments and their communities are indicators that the relationships between police and those they serve – particularly those in minority communities – are in serious disrepair.

Featured speakers include: 

• Carl S. Taylor, Ph.D., professor in the Department of Sociology, senior fellow in university outreach and engagement, and extension specialist at Michigan State University, has extensive experience in field research aimed at the reduction of violence involving American youth.  

• Mark Fancher, who through his work with the American Civil Liberties Union of Michigan, has addressed racial discrimination against public school students of color, racial profiling, attacks on the democratic rights of communities of color and abusive police practices.
