It's no secret that most people have an opinion on policing in America. But what do experts have to say? Sam Walker, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus of the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) School of Criminology and Criminal Justice was one of those experts to weigh in on the recent hearings in Chicago.
Chicago has a historic and racially-charged past involving policing and the community members it serves. As such, change is a necessity. Chicago is on a mission to implement its first civilian-led police oversight board. UNO's Walker was one of our experts to weigh in on the topic at the recent hearings.
The city council meetings received national attention. Read up on the details of the hearings, and the great work of UNO's policing expert, Walker, here:
