30 Issues: Policing at the Community Level

Email a Friend

It’s Public Safety Week on the Brian Lehrer Show’s election series “30 issues in 30 Days.” See the full 30 Issues schedule and archive here.

Bill de Blasio says he will "end the 'Stop and Frisk' era," while Joe Lhota vows to continue many of the policing tactics developed under Bloomberg and Ray Kelly. Eric Adams, NY State Senator, former NYPD captain and candidate for Brooklyn Borough President, and Pastor Gilford Monrose of Mt. Zion Church of God (7th Day), discuss the challenges of community policing, and what the next mayor can do to curb gun violence while also improving relations with the NYPD.
