Description

Community Policing

Where We Are, and Where We Could Be

Dr. Kirk Schneider and Dr. Ginger Charles in Conversation


What is the current state of police-community relations in the US, and how do we as a society move through moments of conflict in a way that honors each other’s humanity, and leads to true progress and beneficial change for all parties involved? How do we foster relationships built on mutual trust and respect between police departments and the communities that they serve?

Join us for an evening of dialogue with Dr. Ginger Charles and Dr. Kirk Schneider as they discuss current research around community policing, as well as the future of police leadership development and dynamic approaches to community conflict resolution. Dr. Charles and Dr. Schneider are leading researchers and practitioners in the field, and have years of experience connecting research and practice to foster positive change in individuals, organizations, and communities.

The dialogue portion of the evening will be followed by a demo of the Experiential Democracy Dialogue approach to conflict mediation.

Refreshments will be provided.
