Guilty verdicts in the trial over the murder of George Floyd represent the difference between “capital-J Justice and small-j justice,” said Margaret Burnham, university distinguished professor of law, during a discussion among Northeastern leaders in the fields of law, policing, criminal justice, and race, on Wednesday.
Northeastern Police Chief Michael Davis began his career as a police officer in the Third Precinct in Minneapolis, the same precinct Derek Chauvin worked, putting in 16 years at the department before becoming chief of police in Brooklyn Park. He discusses the impact of the verdicts and what’s needed to create real change in police departments.
In an effort to facilitate dialogue and enhance policing on campus, the Northeastern University Police Department, in partnership with the NUPD Community Advisory Board, has created a new feedback system designed to make information and the flow of communication more accessible for community members.
