Community policing: six views from Long Beach

Long Beach Police Chief Robert Luna recently appeared at a community forum to assure residents that his department is “concerned” about local police-community relations. But amid a backdrop of complaints over racial profiling and use of excessive force, many question whether enough is being done to repair ties. “Police officers are human beings with families, with personal lives and personal traumas. We need to break down some of these biases against police. That starts on both sides.” Six community residents and activists give their take, on Voicewaves.
