Examining Police Efforts to Address Racial Disparities in Law Enforcement
Researcher Kimberly Burke headlines March 26 discussion at Western Campus
Learn about police efforts to address unconscious bias and racial disparities in the criminal justice system during an upcoming discussion at the Western Campus of Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®).
The free program — “Policing and the Social Psychology of Bias” — will take place from 12:30-1:45 p.m. Monday, March 26, at Tri-C’s Western Campus Theatre in Parma.
Kimberly Burke, a researcher with The Center for Policing Equity, will lead the discussion. She will use her experiences training police across the nation to highlight how social psychology fits into police reform.
The Center for Policing Equity collaborates with law enforcement and government agencies to strengthen relationships with the communities they serve. The goal is to increase policing equity through transparency and accountability while maintaining high standards of service.
