May 9: NYC - Police Accountability: Policing without Permission #MCLE

Over the past few years, the collective attention of the nation has focused on concerns about policing. New surveillance techniques affect all of us. Policing is increasingly militarized. And many policing tactics, such as the use of force, and stop and frisk, fall particularly heavily on communities of color and the poor. While these concerns are not new, renewed attention has provided a platform for those calling for reforms of policing tactics and increased police accountability. At the same time, there also are expressions of concern that police be permitted to do their jobs without endangering their safety.
Join the ACS New York Lawyer Chapter for a conversation at the offices of Simpson Thacher & Bartlett LLP about the ways in which we can increase police accountability, while ensuring police are able to do their jobs.
