Let's Talk Police: Reform, Disarm, Abolish?
Let's Talk New Mexico 6/18, 8a: With protests against systemic racism and violence continuing around the country, many people are questioning the role of law enforcement and imagining different ways of ensuring public safety. This week on Let’s Talk New Mexico, we’ll discuss a spectrum of changes to New Mexico’s police forces that folks are calling for, from reform efforts like banning chokeholds and training officers differently, to more radical proposals that seek to eliminate traditional policing altogether.
We want to hear from you! Can New Mexico communities trust police to “protect and serve?” What are your concerns about law enforcement? What needs to change? Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 277-5866 during the show.
