The Impact of COVID-19 on Policing: The Perspective of the Rank-and-File

Event Dates

Researchers and practitioners alike are still trying to understand the impacts of COVID-19 on the criminal justice system, even though we continue to be in the midst of the pandemic.

Much of the research on COVID-19 and policing has focused on either the impact on calls for service or the perspectives of police executives.

This study assesses the wide range of impacts of COVID-19 on line-level officers and frontline supervisors.

In this webinar, we will discuss a variety of impacts -- like changes to service provision, community needs, and administrative accommodations -- and what these changes might mean for policing moving forward.
