Longstanding tensions between Black and Brown communities and the police have come to a head with the killing of George Floyd. Global protests in support of the dignity of Black lives has followed suit as have calls to reform, defund, and abolish the police. This historic moment represents an important time to rethink policing. In this session LBJ Assistant Professor Gordon Abner will discuss his research on police accreditation. Professor Abner will be joined by Jameila "Meme" Styles from MEASURE, an organization that is at the forefront of addressing community policing and social disparities through a data driven model. Together, Abner and Styles will engage in conversation about how to best harness data to bring about effective and equitable policies that reimagine policing.
