In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, the role of police has expanded to include the enforcement of public-health safety regulations in congruence with local, state, and federal law. With citizens of their jurisdictions eager to escape quarantine and return to normal life, this has been a challenge.
The tragedy and scope of COVID-19 has shown its face in astronomical death tolls and extreme personal sacrifice, with the weight of the pandemic falling hardest on minority communities – specifically on those of Black and Latino Americans. While members of these communities are becoming infected and dying of COVID-19 at higher rates than others, they are also finding themselves in more contact with local law enforcement because of social distancing and additional pandemic-related regulations.
This panel will discuss the challenges of enforcing coronavirus regulations, the impact it has had across different communities, and how that has affected initiatives focused on more equitable policing.
Registration is free.

Police executives across the country are considering changes to how law enforcement personnel will combat crime in an era of elevated scrutiny. NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea, in a letter to all personnel, acknowledged that police officers must “fight crime differently…with less street-stops…while better utilizing data, intelligence, and all the technology at [our] disposal.” Similarly, in numerous legislative chambers throughout the nation, regulatory guidelines involving chokeholds, excessive force, on-the-job training, and more transparent officer misconduct reporting are poised to transform law enforcement behavior as we know it. This conversation will highlight perspectives from prominent industry leaders and observers on the future of policing in America.
