Policing in America Lecture Series Session #4: The Economics of Policing

February 12 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

The U.S. criminal system is a powerful mechanism for the generation and redistribution of wealth, and policing is central to that function.  Historically, a broad array of governmental entities have been known to use policing to control the labor pool, to generate revenue, and to redistribute resources away from heavily policed populations. This panel will discuss these and other economic contours of the policing function.

Speakers:

Abbye Atkinson, University of California, Berkeley School of Law

Ed Gonzalez, Sheriff, Harris County, Texas

Alexes Harris, University of Washington, Department of Sociology

Blake Strode, Executive Director, ArchCity Defenders
