Protests of the police are nothing new in the US. Throughout the 20th and 21st centuries, incidents of police brutality mobilized resistance, especially in marginalized communities that bear the brunt of policing’s harms. Protests then and now highlight policing at odds with basic values of justice, equity, respect, and harm reduction. Given history and recent events, is just policing that reflects these values possible? What public safety strategies, whether they involve the police or not, gives us the best chance to promote these values?

“Policing and Our Values” presented by the Policing, Policy, and Philosophy Initiative (3PI) brings together community leaders, public officials, lawyers, and scholars to explore these questions. The symposium on April 4 focuses on how our values and ethical commitments should inform two areas of policy: police deadly force and public safety strategies that complement and in some cases are alternatives to the police.

The symposium is co-sponsored by the Chicago-Kent College of Law, American Philosophical Association, and Penn State Rock Ethics Institute. It is open to the public, but registration is required. A complimentary lunch will be provided to attendees. This symposium is eligible for Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credit.
