Issues That Matter — 21st Century Policing: Big Job, Big Questions
In recent years, we have seen an increase in confrontations between police and civilians, many of which have made regional and national headlines. Police are using technologically advanced tools, which often present large societal questions. For example: When is the use of deadly force appropriate and how are officers trained to determine when it should be used? Are police forces becoming overly militarized? Are officers adequately trained in the use of non-lethal force? What are the pros and cons of body cameras worn by officers while carrying out their duties? A panel of speakers representing police, government and legal experts will address these and related matters, and will respond to questions from the audience. The event will be co-sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Whidbey Island. Supported by the Sno-Isle Libraries Foundation.
