    Policing extends into many parts of government, including not only the criminal justice system, but also welfare, housing, health, immigration, local government—almost all areas of life. This program reaches across multiple disciplines to investigate the nature and role of the public police, and the way they interact with discrete, often marginalized communities. Too often, discussions of policing fall into narrow academic specializations that provide a partial perspective on what the police do and how to regulate them. Instead of addressing either the sociological, the legal, or the political theoretical issues raised by the police and policing in isolation from each other, this program addresses policing from multiple perspectives, simultaneously. The guiding idea of this symposium is that these different issues and interests are interrelated, and bringing them together can provide useful insights into the problems of policing that an emphasis on Fourth Amendment doctrine misses. Modified versions of these presentations were published in The Cambridge Handbook on Policing in the United States (2019).
