Biases and stereotypes can affect policing and how law enforcement agencies carry out their duties. But officers and other members of law enforcement are not the only ones who have bias/stereotypes. What role do the biases and stereotypes we hold about law enforcement play in the interactions between citizens and officers? This town hall will help us confront stereotypes and biases that undermine interactions between law enforcement and citizens.
