Webinar: The Policing Machine: Enforcement, Endorsements & the Illusion of Public Input

More news about the topic

The Policing Machine shows how police departments build community relationships and leverage the political capital gained through them to resist institutional reforms.  It draws on ethnographic data on America’s largest police department, the NYPD, and concludes that the community relationships that already exist are precisely what is impeding police transformation. The input will be given by As. Prof Tony Cheng, Assistant Professor of Sociology, Duke University.
