Procedural Justice in Policing: The Case of Stockton, California

April 13, 7:00 PM


Join the Goldfarb Center for a virtual lecture by Charles A. Dana Professor of Sociology Neil Gross on criminal justice reform, focused on the potential and limitations of the procedural justice model. Procedural justice is the idea that police, prosecutors, courts, and other representatives of the state should do everything in their power to ensure that the procedures they are following are fair and impartial, and to demonstrate that fairness at every turn.

Professor Gross will share his research in progress on what procedural justice has meant for the police department in Stockton, a city of 310,000 in California's Central Valley. Although procedural justice reforms have been far from a panacea, there is evidence to suggest that they have helped bring meaningful change to the Stockton police department, and may have laid the groundwork for still more meaningful change yet to come.

This will be a virtual event and registration is not required. Closed Captions will be available.
