The police in America belong to the people—not the other way around. Yet millions of Americans experience their cops as racist, brutal, and trigger-happy: an overly aggressive, militarized enemy of the people. For their part, today’s officers feel they are under siege—misunderstood, unfairly criticized, and scapegoated for society’s ills. Is there a fix? Former Seattle Police Chief Norm Stamper believes there is. Be sure to join us for a lively conversation taking on the most controversial of law enforcement issues.
Norm Stamper was a police officer for 34 years, the first 28 in San Diego, the last six (1994-2000) as Seattle’s police chief. He has a Ph.D. in Leadership and Human Behavior and is the author of two books, Breaking Rank: A Top Cop’s Expose of the Dark Side of American Policing and To Protect and Serve: How to Fix America’s Police. He is currently at work on a novel, a trilogy actually.
