    Of Things to Come: Technology, Training and New Policing Guidelines in America

    Police executives across the country are considering changes to how law enforcement personnel will combat crime in an era of elevated scrutiny. NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea, in a letter to all personnel, acknowledged that police officers must “fight crime differently…with less street-stops…while better utilizing data, intelligence, and all the technology at [our] disposal.” Similarly, in numerous legislative chambers throughout the nation, regulatory guidelines involving chokeholds, excessive force, on-the-job training, and more transparent officer misconduct reporting are poised to transform law enforcement behavior as we know it. This conversation highlights perspectives from prominent industry leaders and observers on the future of policing in America.
