To Protect and Serve: How to Fix America’s Police with Former Seattle Police Chief Norm Stamper

February 7 at Noon
The Westin, 1900 5th Ave
 

The police in America belong to the people—not the other way around. Many Americans have an image of the police as racist, brutal, and trigger-happy: an overly aggressive, militarized enemy of the people. And today’s officers feel they are under siege—misunderstood, unfairly criticized, and scapegoated for society’s ills. Is there a fix? Norm Stamper believes there is.​
