What's Wrong With Policing? (And How to Fix It)

For much of the last four years, policing and surveillance often have dominated the headlines.  In June of 2013, Edward Snowden shook the country with news that the government was conducting widespread surveillance.  In August of 2014, the shooting of Michael Brown kicked off widespread protests in Ferguson, Missouri – protests which continued around the country.  At the same time, “proactive” policing tactics like stop-and-frisk have been hotly-debated, and secret surveillance continues to be an issue, such as the use by law enforcement of Stingray cell-tracking devices.  Most recently, the Trump Administration has threatened to send federal agents into Chicago to stop gun violence there, and has sought to enlist local police officers in immigration enforcement.   In this talk, Barry Friedman will explain how all these issues are related – by a failure to engage in democratic policing.  He also will discuss the work being done by the Policing Project at NYU Law to change things.
