    The Reimagining Systems Series: What are the Approaches to Police Reform?

    World Affairs Council of Philadelphia

    • Tuesday August 18th 2020, 5:00pm to 6:15pm
    While it’s clear that police reform is necessary, the question that many are asking in light of George Floyd’s murder and the ensuing Black Lives Matter protests is, “How?”

    Proposals for police reform range from increasing spending, education, training, and equipment (like broader adoption of body-cameras) for police to abolishing police as we know it and replacing with an increased focus on community services. And the spectrum in between is broad and complex. So again—what do we do, and how do we implement changes?
