A Conversation On Defunding Police Departments

There is a move to redirect funds away from police departments and towards community based programs. How and should that take place? It is a topic being debated across the country.

Tonight, part two of our conversation on policing and proposed reforms to police departments across the country.

In part one we heard from the men and women in blue whose charge is to serve and protect.

Tonight, we hear from elected officials who make the laws and who represent the community.

Are new laws needed?  And if so, what should they look like and would they make a difference?  Just a few of the questions we’ll tackle.


Our guests:

Will Jawando – Member of the Montgomery County Council

Phil Mendelson – Chairman of the DC Council
