Can trust be built between the police and the citizenry?

    In the past weeks, a Philadelphia police officer was murdered and a videotape of police beating suspects was repeatedly aired on television. We discuss the challenges of keeping our streets safe and of building trust between police and the community. Our guests are RICHARD ROSS, Deputy Police Commissioner, promoted to this Three Star Deputy position by Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey earlier this month and PATRICK CARR, Assistant Professor of Sociology at Rutgers University. He is author of “Clean Streets: Controlling Crime, Maintaining Order and Building Community Activism.”
