Reimagining Public Safety: Dream realized or deferred?
Panelists at the February 8 event will discuss policing in the post George Floyd era: What has changed in law enforcement and what hasn’t? Do we need police? After the protests, can we come together to discuss meaningful and lasting change? Panelists and attendees will discuss and answer questions on where policing needs to go, what has changed at the University of Utah, and what do we, as a society, do now. Register to attend in-person or via Zoom here.
