Date(s) - February 7, 2021
9:30 am - 10:45 am

Nine out of 10 calls for police are for nonviolent encounters.  Nationally, there’s talk about defunding the police and reallocating funds to social service agencies.  How can communities defuse low-level misdemeanors, keep more people out of jail, and improve racial relations? What’s happening locally?

Speakers: Daniel Flannery, CWRU Professor and Director, Begun Center for Violence Prevention;  David Weiss, Mayor of Shaker Heights; Carole Ballard, Director, Education & Training, ADAMHS Board of Cuyahoga County.
