Chicago in Focus: Community Policing

Join us to hear from Chicago Superintendent of Police Eddie T. Johnson and Dr. Helen Neville about how Chicago’s community policing program strives to build trust, help reduce crime, and make our neighborhoods safer. What is community policing? Why does it matter? What needs to be done?

Chicago Superintendent of Police Eddie T. Johnson will explain the nature and importance of community policing in a multiracial, democratic society, and Dr. Helen Neville, Director of the R.A.C.E (Race Activism Civic Engagement) Lab at the University of Illinois-Urbana-Champagne, will describe the type of police training necessary to implement and sustain just policing in a multiracial society.

LWVIL Executive Director Audra Wilson will moderate the discussion.
