Racial Differences in Arrests

Lt. Col. Melvin Russell and Dr. Phillip A. Goff

Join us for a conversation with two leading experts on race and community-police partnerships. Baltimore's own Lieutenant Colonel Melvin Russell and national scholar Dr. Phillip Goff will address some provocative issues: What are the underlying causes of racial differences in arrests? What role does implicit bias play? Is it possible for communities and police to work together in a meaningful way?

Joe Jones, executive director of the Center for Urban Families and OSI-Baltimore board member, will serve as moderator.

Lt. Col. Melvin Russell, a 30-year veteran of the Baltimore Police Department, serves as the chief of its Community Partnerships Division. He previously served as the commanding officer of Baltimore's Eastern District.

Dr. Phillip A. Goff is the executive director of research for the Consortium for Police Leadership in Equity and assistant professor of social psychology at the University of California, Los Angeles. He is a leader in psychological research on race, gender, and policing.
