Toward Trust: Recommendations for Police Reform in Baltimore

October 19, 2015, 12:00pm ET - 1:15pm ET

When Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old black man, died in the custody of Baltimore police officers on April 19, 2015, the incident brought to a head years of anger that residents felt toward the Baltimore Police Department. The protests that followed—often referred to as the Baltimore uprising—focused a national spotlight on the city. But for local residents, Gray’s death was only the latest grievance against a police department that had long been perceived as overly aggressive, out of touch with the community, and able to act with impunity.

Please join the Center for American Progress and the Campaign for Justice, Safety, and Jobs for a panel discussion on how policymakers can begin to build trust between the police in Baltimore and the communities they have sworn to serve.
