On December 1, the Cato Institute will be hosting a full day conference, Policing in America, to examine the current state and future of American law enforcement. We have collected a diverse group of expert panelists to discuss emerging technologies and crime control strategies, as well as recurring problems like accountability and negative impacts on minority communities.
Confirmed speakers include Prof. Jerry Ratcliffe, chair of the Department of Criminal Justice at Temple University; Prof. Cynthia Lum, George Mason University Department of Criminology, Law and Society and director of the Center for Evidence-Based Crime Policy; Prof. David A. Klinger, University of Missouri-St. Louis; Vicki Gaubeca, director of the Regional Center for Border Rights, ACLU-New Mexico; Prof. Samuel Walker, University of Nebraska-Omaha (emeritus); Prof. Wadie E. Said, University of South Carolina School of Law; Prof. Pete Kraska, School of Justice Studies at Eastern Kentucky University; Michael Kurtenbach, Assistant Police Chief, Phoenix, Arizona Police Department; Nathan Freed Wessler, staff attorney at the ACLU’s Speech, Privacy, and Technology Project; and Prof. William Jelani Cobb, Director, Institute for African American Studies, University of Connecticut.
