  • Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “🚓 Will policing in the US ever change? | The Stream” – below is their description.

    Yale psychology professor Dr Phillip Atiba Goff is on a mission to revolutionise policing in the United States.

    Goff, who is also co-founder and CEO of the Center for Policing Equity, collects data on the intersectionality of policing and race and uses it to work with police departments in an effort to improve practices.

    National protests calling for racial justice erupted in the US last summer after the killing of George Floyd by Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, who has since been convicted of murder. While Goff believes a national dialogue has value, he says real change comes at the local and state level. If you want to change policing in the United States, you have to change police behaviour. And to do that, Goff says, you need to understand why individual officers make the decisions they do.

    In this episode of The Stream, we sit down with Goff to ask whether an overhaul of policing in the US is likely – or even possible.
