Police Policy-Making

Most of us think of police policy-making as done by the legislature, or perhaps by the police. In either case, the goal is to provide a democratic process to determine best practices for the police, balancing their interests
against the public interest. Increasingly, however, the police are obtaining boilerplate policy from private policy-makers whose primary role is to indemnify the police against lawsuits. This leaves the public interest out of the equation.

Join a panel of experts for a discussion on the trivatization of police policymaking and its effect on the public.
