Predicting the future of policing
Policing is essential for community safety, but what does the future hold for law enforcement?
We are at a crossroads in policing with so many issues unfolding. What are the long-term effects on law enforcement of defunding, COVID-19, the recruitment crisis and public perception? What about AI? Technology? Less lethal weapons? How do all these things impact officer safety and morale? Wouldn’t it be great to get a glimpse into the future to give assurance to our veteran officers and their families to stay the course and to let new candidates know policing is still a noble profession worth entering?
