The Mob Museum to debut 3-part forum on future of policing

Posted at 1:32 PM, Aug 06, 2020

The Mob Museum, The National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement, announces a three-part series of public forums on the Future of Policing beginning Aug. 20.

The series will explore the consequences of historic injustices, address the nationwide calls to reshape American policing and consider what can be done to serve all members of society more equally.

The first installation in this series, titled “Reinventing Law Enforcement: Changing the Culture of Policing,” will include four expert panelists comprising of activists and law enforcement officials discussing police reform measures and the current social unrest following the death of George Floyd.

All three forums will be live-streamed and accommodate a small, in-person audience based on reduced capacity to follow public health guidelines. The first program taking place on August 20 is sold out.

The cost to enter is free. Please email boxoffice@themobmuseum.org to be added on the waitlist.

The second installment, “Race and Policing in America: A History of Conflict” will take place on Sept. 22.

The final discussion of the three-part series will be on Oct. 15, which will tackle “The Push for Change: Legislative Pathways to Police Reform.”
