David Harris on Racial Profiling and Police/Community Ties in St. Louis and Central Missouri

Professor David Harris did a series of talks in St. Louis, Columbia, and Jefferson City, Missouri to community groups and law enforcement officials on why police departments and communities must address racial profiling in order to have successful public safety efforts. The talks, sparked by release of racial profiling data required by state law and sponsored by the Missouri Association for Social Welfare, included a number of open forums attended by both police officers and community members, and one closed session in St. Louis for police leadership, policy makers, legislators, and community leaders. Professor Harris also discusses the issues on two public radio programs and in other media.
