Criminal Justice Reform: Understanding the Root of the Problem and the Cost of the Cure

John Villanueva

How did the police – sworn to protect and serve their communities – come to be seen as an occupying force by disadvantaged communities throughout America? Why have they lost the faith and confidence of the communities they serve? What needs to be done to turn the tide and restore the profession of policing and the trust of the communities they serve? These are the questions that will be addressed factually, without bias, and with an eye on elevating the profession and serving the community.
