It’s 2019, and we still can’t answer a fundamental question: What should our society expect from our police officers and departments? Ed spent the weekend in Austin, Texas, to host a panel at this year’s installment of the famed South by Southwest conference alongside Josie Duffy Rice, Dr. Phillip Atiba Goff, and Ron Davis. The panel of four—a former Justice Department prosecutor, a journalist, an academic, and a police chief—offered their personal insights into what policing should and shouldn’t look like in this day and age, and how policing intersects with criminal justice reform and social support systems writ large. This episode is a lightly edited version of their conversation.
