These Days of Dialogue on the Future of Policing come at an important time in the life of our nation and in greater Los Angeles. August 2015 marked the start of a year long series of dialogue sessions on this topic.

As tensions rise due to our increased awareness about violent interactions between law enforcement and people of color, it is certainly a time when authentic dialogue between all stakeholders may help to build bridges between community members, our institutional leaders, law enforcement, and public safety organizations.

Participants’ survey results (which were submitted without attribution, in order to encourage candor) indicate an overwhelming belief that the dialogue process is helpful. Participants express openness to constructively engaging in dialogue, as well as openness to changing their minds when given the opportunity to explore different perspectives and gain new insights.
