    Police reform must respond to a variety of legal and social problems. Rushin discusses the role of police unions in negotiating agreements that grant officers protections from disciplinary action. Hollander-Blumoff argues that procedural justice improves interactions between police and civilians when focused on increasing officer self-control to be better at handling emotionally charged situations. Kennedy argues that trust between community and police requires acknowledging the deep trauma that communities have suffered because of the police.
