Join us in partnership with the Washington Council of Lawyers for an open discussion about the role and impact of local policing, police training, and ways to get involved locally. The speakers will discuss the current condition of community policing, inherit bias and de-escalation training, and the status of D.C. Policing in comparison to national trends. Attendees should expect to learn ways to get involved in the process as a takeaway.
