The present moment is a pivotal time for police and the communities they serve nationwide. The Trump Administration is setting new law enforcement priorities, including establishing a new Task Force on Crime Reduction and Public Safety focused on reducing violent crime and supporting police. In recent decades there have been major successes and innovations in law enforcement across the country as well as long-term declines in crime rates. However, the last two years have brought an array of challenges to the law enforcement community: Crime rates increased in major cities across the country, immigration concerns grew more complex, and violence against police officers spiked. Join us for the release of Heritage’s special report, Policing in America: Lessons from the Past, Opportunities for the Future and a frank discussion with some of America’s foremost law enforcement professionals.
