HISTORY OF POLICING IN THE UNITED STATES
January 16, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Part of a week of virtual workshops organized by the Seattle MLK Jr. Organizing Coalition and recommended by Seattle Indivisible.
This workshop will focus on the origins, development and evolving nature of policing in the US, beginning with colonial America through the present day. An emphasis on the quasi-military nature of policing and the increased militarization of the police since 9/11 will be examined, particularly as to how it has negatively impacted police/community relations.
