This recorded seminar was originally presented as the live seminar and webcast A Look at Police and People of Color Racial Progress or a Deepening Racial Divide?, recorded on May 16, 2017, in Seattle, WA. If you attended the live seminar or webcast and reported CLE credits, you cannot also report credits from watching or listening to this recording.

Focusing on complaints of police use of excessive force against communities of color, this recorded seminar examines the recent history of these issues (nationwide and in the State of Washington), communities of color who have pressed complaints, the federal and local governments' response to complaints and the perspectives of practitioners who have represented the victims of excessive policing.

Topics include:
  • Historical issues in Seattle and the State of Washington, with Lembhard G. Howell – Attorney at Law, Seattle.
  • A closer look at the City of Seattle Consent Decree, with Pete Holmes, Seattle City Attorney; and Ron Ward, Seattle attorney and member of the Monitoring Team for the Seattle Consent Decree.
  • Responses from the government: federal and local standards for policing, investigations and holding police accountable, with Deborah Jacobs, King County’s Office of Law Enforcement Oversight Director.
  • Police reform: progress defined through a racial equity lens (panel discussion)
  • Litigating police misconduct/shooting cases (panel discussion)
