Police Accountability: A Discussion with Deborah Ramirez

One of the central concerns about how to produce more equitable and just outcomes has been how to make the police accountable for their misconduct. On Wednesday, October 20, Professor Deborah Ramirez will join the Harvard Kennedy School's Reimagining Community Safety Speaker Series to discuss her four-part solution, which includes restricting police union’s collective bargaining and narrowing qualified immunity by using professional liability insurance, efforts that should save lives by detecting, preventing, and deterring police misconduct. This is bound to be a stimulating and insightful discussion.

The Reimagining Community Safety Speaker Series is organized and moderated by Professor Sandra Susan Smith, Daniel and Florence Guggenheim Professor of Criminal Justice, HKS; Faculty Director, Program in Criminal Justice Policy and Management; and Carol K. Pforzheimer Professor at Harvard Radcliffe Institute.
