After the death of George Floyd and other Black people at the hands of police,  many are saying it's time for major reforms in the way police departments operate. This has included calls to demilitarize and defund police departments while increasing community policing. What are the options being discussed and how could these ensure more equitable treatment for everyone? 

Michigan Radio Morning Edition host Doug Tribou hosted this live discussion about police reform.   Joining Doug on the panel were:  

  • Jennifer Cobbina, Associate Professor - Michigan State University School of Criminal Justice
  • Erin Keith, Staff Attorney - Detroit Justice Center
  • Eric Payne, Chief of Police - City of Grand Rapids
