Recent events have caused protesters throughout the country to call for "defunding the police." What type of changes are being sought, and is defunding the answer? What would it mean to change the funding structure of the police department, and would that result in better policing? How is the Wichita Police Department addressing community concerns? Join us in a Candid Conversation panel discussion including: Dr. Michael Birzer, Professor in WSU's School of Criminal Justice; Gwen Grant, President & CEO of the Urban League of Greater Kansas City; and Wanda Parker-Givens, Deputy Chief of the Wichita Police Department. Co-sponsored by the League of Women Voters Wichita-Metro. Registration is required. Call (316) 261-8500 or visit wichitalibrary.org/events to register. This program will be held online via Zoom. A link to the program will be sent to your inbox the day before and the day of the program.
