These experts will share historical and background information relevant to where we are today in terms or militarization and community policing. These experts from the Department of Justice, the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Texas Southern University, local law enforcement CEOs, and law enforcement organizations and associations will assemble in Houston, Texas on December 15, 2014 to present “A Symposium for Law Enforcement CEOs: Moving Beyond Ferguson.” The event, to be attended by law enforcement officials only, will be held at the Thurgood Marshall School of Law, 3100 Cleburne St., Houston, Texas, from 8:00 AM to 4:15 PM.
