Policing the American city

Brooks-tangled upRosa Brooks, the Scott K. Ginsburg Professor of Law and Policy at Georgetown University Law Center and founder of Georgetown’s Innovative Policing Program, will deliver the Winston Center’s Chambers Lecture on March 1 at 6 p.m. in Gasson 100. Brooks is an expert on national security, international law, constitutional law, and criminal justice. She is the author of Tangled Up in Blue: Policing the American City (Penguin Books, 2021), in which she recounts her four years of experience as a sworn, armed reserve police officer with Washington D.C. Metropolitan Police Department, and argues that a nation increasingly divided by race, class, ethnicity, geography, and ideology needs a truly transformative approach to policing. The program she leads at Georgetown rethinks the role police should play in today’s society and helps communities, police, and the broader legal system to work together to address the legacy of racial discrimination and over-criminalization. Brooks is also the author of the book  How Everything Became War and the Military Became Everything and is a frequent contributor to the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Washington Post, and a frequent guest on MSNBC, Fox, CNN, and NPR.
