By Police1 Staff

DALLAS — Lexipol has announced an upcoming webinar series on police reform. The series will consist of three webinars that focus on central reform topics – use of force, crisis response and officer training – featuring subject matter experts Chief (Ret.) Michael Ranalli and Laura Scarry, partner with DeAno & Scarry in Chicago.

The series aims to advance the conversation around police reform and help both law enforcement agencies and community members increase awareness and understanding of public safety research, information and resources.

“The topic of police reform is not something for law enforcement professionals to shy away from because reform can be synonymous with improvement,” said Ranalli, who previously served as chief of the Glenville, New York, Police Department and now serves as a program manager for Lexipol. “Our emphasis should be on engaging the community to make meaningful and effective reform a reality. At Lexipol, our role is to share our public safety expertise to cultivate informed discussions, helping law enforcement and the public determine the best path forward for their communities.”

All three webinars are free and open to law enforcement and interested community members:

  • Use of Force: Policy or Tactics? | March 4, 2021

  • Response to People in Crisis: Mitigating Harm & Enhancing the Safety of All Involved | March 30, 2021

  • Training “Artifacts”: The Role Training—or Lack of Training—Plays in Poor Decisions | April 20, 2021
