Academy Forum | Police Unions, Race, and Trust in the Police
October 2, 2023
3:00 p.m.–4:15 p.m. ET
Daniel Disalvo and Matthew Nagler, with discussant Robert Gillezeau, look at the effect of police unionization on trust in the police and, in particular, in mediating the adverse impacts of police killings of civilians on trust within the U.S. multiracial context. Moderated by Marylena Mantas, with a welcome from Robert Y. Shapiro.
Join the live discussion to ask questions and to meet the authors of “Police Unions, Race, and Trust in the Police”— from the Summer 2023 issue of Political Science Quarterly. In their research, Daniel Disalvo and Matthew Nagler find that in jurisdictions where police bargain collectively the drop in non-black trust is effectively eliminated, suggesting that police unionization essentially abets the polarization of trust in the police between blacks and non-blacks.
