POLICING LOS ANGELES FORUM: ADDRESSING POLICE MISCONDUCT

LAPD officers were recently caught branding youth as gang members without evidence and improperly entering their names into the CalGang database. Myriad lawsuits allege that LASD has internal “deputy gangs” that escalate uses of force and facilitate wrongful convictions through perjured testimony and a “code of silence.” In the wake of these scandals, the community presses for reforms to address recurring police misconduct.

Law enforcement resists, claiming that implementing the requested reforms would violate the Peace Officers Bill of Rights and prior agreements with police unions. The panel will discuss strategies for achieving meaningful accountability to address claims of police misconduct.

Friday, February 14 at 12:00pm to 1:30pm
