The Paradox of Being a Black Police Officer in Today's Society

Wednesday, August 2, 2017

Officer Corey Saffold is a law enforcement professional in Madison, known in the community for his volunteerism and work with youth of all ages and backgrounds. In his talk, Corey will discuss his experiences as a Black policeman in the wake of multiple, highly publicized police killings of unarmed African-Americans, and the paradox of being a Black officer during a time when police are viewed as an enemy and often not trusted, especially among the African-American community. Officer Saffold will offer his strategy for engaging the community at large around these issues that have also affected him personally. Corey will relay his personal experiences with law enforcement and how these experiences have helped to shape his approach to upholding the law throughout the city. Free to attend. No registration required. This ShopTalk event is sponsored by the Wisconsin Humanities Council and the Working Lives Project.
