Future of Policing

In an effort to ensure constructive civic engagement around the difficult issue of police violence, the Institute for Nonviolence in Los Angeles (INVLA), through its Days of Dialogue program, has been conducting dialogues throughout Los Angeles County on the “Future of Policing.” The initiative launched on August 11, 2015, marking the 50th Anniversary of the Watts Rebellion. Since that date, hundreds of people have gathered in sites across Los Angeles to share their perspectives on how to rebuild trust between community and law enforcement in a time when nearly every week we hear another story of a violent clash.  INVLA,  along with LAPD and other local law enforcement agencies, are committed to continuing to create opportunities for these dialogues to happen throughout 2017. We urge you to participate in these dialogues.  Together, we can impact policy and elicit real change.
