Between Black and Blue: Complexity within the Black law enforcement community

February 25, 2021 | 2pm EST

The National Law Enforcement Memorial and Museum (NLEMM) and the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives (NOBLE) are working together to create discussions that will lead to better support for our Black law enforcement officers and encourage new recruits to join the force and protect our communities. Although decades of reform and diversity efforts have led to some gains in the recruitment of Black police officers, it has not been enough to keep pace with the changing demographics of the country. At the same time, some Black officers who pursue careers in law enforcement have complained of a condemnation from members of their community skeptical of law enforcement as well as from their recruiting agency that is resistant to self-examination regarding race and institutional bias.

This discussion will examine the potential “double backlash” facing African American police officers and pathways to changing the culture inside agencies that could result in a more positive perception of the law enforcement community. Does the Black community support Black law enforcement? Should agencies and departments work toward recruiting officers that better reflect the communities they serve? What impact could this have on preventing crime and building trust between law enforcement and the community?

These questions and more will be answered by our panelists in a two-part live virtual discussion focusing on the varied perspectives within law enforcement and the community.

The Female Force: Empowering Women in Law Enforcement

The Female Force

The National Law Enforcement Memorial and Museum (NLEMM) and the National Organization of Women Law Enforcement Executives (NAWLEE) are working together to provide this live virtual discussion focusing on empowering women in law enforcement.

Women constitute less than 13% of total officers in this country—with an even smaller proportion of leadership positions—despite comprising over 50% of the total US population. Despite recent efforts to increase representation, the percentage of women in law enforcement has remained stagnant for the past few decades.

How do women contribute in ways that differ from their male colleagues? What strengths do women bring to the field? How do they impact the safety of officers and the communities they serve? These questions and others will be discussed during our live program, moderated by Kathy O’Toole. Additional participants will be announced soon.

Join us for a conversation that will continue to build from the stories and insights shared during our Breaking the Blue Ceiling event in December 2020.
