Policing and Public Safety

This seminar will examine what constitutes public safety and what are the most effective ways to achieve it. We will look at the vast responsibility and discretion afforded police in responding to and addressing crime and the fear crime. We will discuss issues such as police legitimacy, police integrity, the use of force, and other related issues. We will also look at the role of the community and other stakeholders in achieving public safety. We will use legal scholarship, social science research, case law, news clippings and legislative responses to examine this complex area.
