    Minority Law Enforcement Diversity Initiative

    in Legal

    During the past half-century, police violence against African Americans—at once, both grotesque and routine—sparked two great Los Angeles riots and other instances of civil unrest. In recent years, the protests against these police killings have taken the form of movements to reform police practices and change the nature of police training, as well as the composition of the police forces themselves. These movements, however, have yet to engender a nationwide call for police reform until now. Efforts are under way to increase the percentage of minorities


    Studies show that while African-American police officers are much like their white counterparts in arrest rates, their presence enhances the credibility of the entire police force within the black community.


    Joining us tonight for this discussion is retired Houston Police Officer Kavin Brown. Also Joining us is retired New York Police Officer Greg Mosley. Greg Mosley is the President of Operation Unite, which aims to develop a pool of minority candidates that are able and willing to take advantage of openings for police officers.
