Deliberative Forum on Policing

National Issues Forums Institute

Location: Online

Join this interactive discussion with participants from around the country.  People in communities across the country are considering policing practices that treat all people fairly while still enforcing the law.  

  • What law enforcement functions do we most value and want to enhance? What aspects do we want to eliminate or rethink?
  • What roles should community members, law enforcement, officeholders, social services, educators, businesses, and others play as we work to enhance and improve policing?

During the forum, participants will discuss perspectives and experiences as they weigh the pros and cons of various approaches to the issue and gain important insights from other participants in a civil and productive atmosphere.

The interactive discussion will be guided by an unbiased facilitator using the issue discussion guide “Policing: What Should We Do to Ensure Fair Treatment and Keep Neighborhoods Safe for Everyone?”. We encourage you to download and read the guide prior to the forum. https://www.nifi.org/en/issue-guide/policing

Information to join Zoom will be sent 48 hours prior to the forum. We look forward to your participation!
