Law Enforcement Post-Ferguson: How Misinformation and Divisive Rhetoric Is Undermining Public Safety, Policing, and the Rule of Law

Co-hosted by

American law enforcement is under attack … and not just from the criminal element. Aggressive and hostile anti-police rhetoric, largely presented to the general public without context or perspective, is undermining public safety, damaging the institution of law enforcement, and threatening the rule of law.

Americans in Support of Law Enforcement and The Heritage Foundation will address how such rhetoric is influencing police behavior, affecting communities nationwide, and discuss how to lower tensions in the public discourse, reduce misinformation, and reestablish a positive working relationship between the public and the men and women who serve in law enforcement.
