About this Event

In celebration of Black History Month, join the Safe Communities Institute & the USC Black Alumni Association on Wednesday, February 19, 2020 at USC for a panel discussion highlighting Black Law Enforcement Chiefs!

This panel will feature four current and former African American Chiefs of Police to examine the racial challenges they experienced within the law enforcement culture to reach the highest rank at their agencies. The conversation will explore how and why racism within the profession exists and in fact, may be worsening, as national polarization increases. Police departments are challenged with attracting and recruiting an organization representative of the communities they serve, in an attempt to build trust and legitimacy.

The event is dedicated to the late Mr. Earl Paysinger, the USC vice president of civic engagement who was also a 41-year veteran of the Los Angeles Police Department. Read more.

Seating is limited, RSVP today!
