11th Annual Fall Ethics Symposium – The Ethics of Policing
Criminal justice reform is on the minds of many American citizens, and especially concerns about the use of aggressive tactics by law enforcement officers. In cities all over the country, law enforcement officers find themselves under intense scrutiny and criticism in the wake of several highly publicized and tragic instances of alleged police misconduct. How did we get into the current situation? What can we do to promote the morally best behavior in officers, the morally best outcomes for the communities they serve, and the morally best structures for accountability and reform?
This symposium series is presented by Cosumnes River College (http://crc.losrios.edu) and California State University, Sacramento (http://www.csus.edu).
