This program will explore police reform efforts in Onondaga County over the past year and connect those efforts to the broader national conversation about policing practices, including the work of the Legal Education Police Practices Consortium, a joint effort between the American Bar Association and law schools to contribute to the national effort to examine and address legal issues in policing and public safety.
The panel will discuss topics including:
- Police use-of-force policies
- Active Bystander Training for Law Enforcement (ABLE Project)
- Police-community relations
- 911 Diversion Program
- Suicide Prevention Task Force
- Alternatives to arrest
Along with other key provisions of the Police Reform and Reinvention Plans recently developed by Onondaga County and the City of Syracuse.
Sponsored by Syracuse University College of Law, the Syracuse Civics Initiative, the American Constitution Society, and the Criminal Law Society.
