08/16 - Black & the Blue

Can community policing change perceptions among the police and the public they serve?

The July shooting of an African-American male in Baton Rouge by two white police officers reignited a national debate on how law enforcement interacts with minority communities. The following day, a second questionable shooting in Minnesota of a black man by a white policeman prompted further protests, demonstrations that were marred by the targeted ambush of 12 white officers in Dallas. Ten days later, three members of law enforcement in Baton Rouge were intentionally killed by a black man from Missouri.

What can be done to improve trust among the police and the public they serve? How can Louisiana’s Capital City productively move beyond these events?

Louisiana Public Square looks for answers on “Black & the Blue” Wednesday, August 17 at 7 p.m. on LPB HD and in New Orleans on WLAE. (Recording Tuesday, August 16.)
