|New Hot Topics Guide on Police Reform
In the last few years, protests against racial discrimination and police brutality against BIPOC communities have become common. Groups like Black Lives Matter have called for the reform of police departments. Reform proposals have appeared at local, state, and national levels, and have included calls for increased transparency, increased oversight of police departments by civilians, illegalization of some police tactics, and ending some legal protections afforded to police officers.
The Hot Topics: Police Reform guide is intended to assist undergraduate students in beginning their research in this important area, and we hope you will share it with your students.
If you are interested in having the Reference Librarians develop a Hot Topics guide on a particular topic contact your Subject Librarian, or Nancy Lewis.
