KPCC In Person is talking law enforcement, and you picked the topic.
We started by inviting your questions on crime and public safety.
We narrowed them to three, and you let us know what matters most by voting for the question you wanted as the focus of our conversation. The responses have been tallied, and the top vote-getter is focused on transparency in law enforcement.
KPCC correspondent Frank Stoltze and special guests will discuss how recent changes in state law and local policy are opening up previously secret police records to public scrutiny. How will that affect the way law enforcement does its job? How will it affect the relationship between the police and the community?
Join KPCC In Person and The National Center for the Preservation of Democracy on Wednesday, May 22, at the Tateuchi Democracy Forum at the Japanese American National Museum in downtown Los Angeles for a conversation that was determined by you.
Arif Alikhan – director of constitutional policing and policy at LAPD
Peter Bibring– director of police practices for ACLU of Southern California
Connie Rice – civil rights activist, lawyer and co-founder of The Advancement Project
Additional guests to be announced.
A post-event reception will follow the program so that we may continue the conversation.
