There is a divide between the police department and the community which was highlighted by the events that occurred in Lancaster in 2020 in addition to the overall climate of national tension. As part of the MLD103M course, students at the Havrard Kennedy School and Harvard Graduate School of Education spent 7 weeks working with the Director of Neighborhood Engagement for the City of Lancaster and the Chief of Police to better understand this problem and to help identify ideas and entry points. In this presentation, the student team and their authorizer will share some of their key takeaways and recommendations from this experience.
Presenters: Anne Dietterich, Awab Elmesbah, students at the Harvard Kennedy School; Amreen Bashir, Revanth Voothaluru, Seun Akinfolarin, students at the Harvard Graduate School of Education; Milzy Carrasco, Director of Neighborhood Engagement for the City of Lancaster and Implementing Public Policy executive course alumni. Moderator: Salimah Samji, Director of Building State Capability (BSC).
