Texas Southern University to host community policing workshop focused on data and reform (425 hits)

April 27 event is co-sponsored by MEASURE, Houston Police Department and Mark43

Texas Southern University’s Center for Justice Research, along with co-sponsors MEASURE, MARK43 and the Houston Police Department, will host the 2019 Big Data Community Policing Workshop, a free four-hour training that includes breakout sessions by experts in the fields of law enforcement, social advocacy, research and technology. The event takes place on Saturday, April 27, from 8 a.m.-3 p.m. in TSU’s Barbara Jordan-Mickey Leland School of Public Affairs building. There is a networking breakfast before the program and a mixer concluding the event. Law enforcement leaders, activists, technology developers, students, analysts, concerned citizens and other stakeholders are encouraged to attend.

“Attendees will learn more about evidence-based policing and the role that data plays in the push for social change,” said Howard Henderson, executive director of the Center for Justice Research. “Working together, agencies, community organizations and individual citizens can make a difference in how our communities are policed.”

Established in 2018, the Center for Justice Research is a nonpartisan research center devoted to data-driven solutions for an equitable criminal justice system. The primary focus is to produce innovative solutions to criminal justice reform efforts by utilizing an experienced group of researchers working to understand and address the current challenges of the criminal justice system.

Henderson emphasized that each of the co-sponsors bring unique expertise and contributions to the discussion. MEASURE, based in Austin, is a not-for-profit research and public education organization which seeks to bridge divisions though data and public education in active partnership with local communities to address complex social problems. It has put on similar workshops in Austin and Dallas. The Houston Police Department will bring its own set of expertise to the discussion, with Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo scheduled to appear.

The workshop will feature breakout sessions covering topics such as Evidence-Based Policing 101, Intro to Compstat 360, Design Thinking, Mindfulness in De-Escalation, Dive into the Data, The New Officer, Faith Communities & Justice, and Raising a Village.

A lunch and learn session will focus on 21st Century Policing.

The event is also sponsored by Mark43, a public safety software platform that helps empower communities and their governments with new technologies that help improve safety and quality of life.
