Sacred Conversations offers ‘Policing the Police’

Sacred Conversations offers ‘Policing the Police’ 724 483 Episcopalians in Connection

The speaker for September’s meeting of Sacred Conversations will be Philip Stinson, JD, PhD, professor of criminal justice at Bowling Green State University. Dr. Stinson’s primary area of research is police behaviors, including police crime, police corruption, and police misconduct. He is the principal investigator on a research project funded by a grant from the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) at the U.S. Department of Justice to study police crime across the United States. The grant has allowed him to create a national database tracking police who have been disciplined and/or terminated, yet been hired in another police department.

Prior to Dr. Stinson’s project, there were no official statistics on crime committed by sworn law enforcement officers, and the public is generally without the ability to research the incidence and prevalence of police crime in their own communities. The Police Crime database is designed to fill that gap.

All are welcome to join and be a part of the conversation.
