Session 80: PL5 -> Minority Trust and Confidence in the Police
Time: 2:40PM to 4:10 PM on Wednesday, November 19
Place: Plaza Ballroom D
Session Chair: Lois Felson Mock, National Institute of Justice
This panel will present findings to date from four studies funded under the National Institute of Justice program of research on "Minority Trust and Confidence in the Police". The studies reflect different methodological approaches and focus on a range of location types, including large northern and midwestern cities, a more rural southern area, and a nationwide perspective. However, they all deal with major questions arising from the current debate on the policing of minorities in the United States.
