Policing and the Community – Black Lives Matter: Dialogue & Debate

An interactive Dialogue & Debate webinar from Cumberland Lodge, streamed live on Wednesday 15 July 2020 at 11am

Resource type: Webinar

This webinar is the third in a four-part mini-series on issues of race and justice in policing, education, the culture sector and wider society, as part of the regular series of Dialogue & Debate webinars from Cumberland Lodge.

Cumberland Lodge trustee and former Chief Executive of the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC), Jane Furniss chairs the discussion, with guest panellists:

  • Commander Dr Alison Heydari – Metropolitan Police
  • Leroy Logan MBE – Former Superintendent in the Metropolitan Police and Chair of Trustees at Voyage Youth
  • Rev Canon Dr Rosemarie Mallet – Archdeacon of Croydon
  • Hashi Mohamed – Barrister at No5 Chambers, Author and Broadcaster 

We examine the responses of Black, Asian and minority ethnic police officers to the Black Lives Matter protests.

This webinar also connects with our recent work on Resilient Communities at Cumberland Lodge. It examines how society can respond to the grief and anger expressed over racial discrimination, to help bring people together.

We explore how the current situation might be a catalyst for positive social change and new forms of police-community collaboration.
