In the yearlong Policing in America lecture series, Harvard Law School faculty members Andrew Manuel Crespo and Alexandra Natapoff bring together an interdisciplinary group of scholars in conversation with police, prosecutors, activists, and other leading voices to analyze the complex and democratically vital questions raised by the institution of American policing. These conversations are aimed at illuminating the current moment, what brought us here, and the opportunities it presents to us as a legal and national community moving forward.
In this third session of the series, held on November 13, a panel of experts explores the powerful role of police unions, their history, current practices and controversies, and how they might become part of an improved policing landscape.
