Walk the Walk: How Three Police Chiefs Defied the Odds and Changed Cop Culture
We will discuss “Walk the Walk,” a book about why police reform will fail if it does not address “cop culture,” which are the ways police officers view their work and their relations with others. It focuses on three police chiefs, including one in Georgia, who changed their departments’ culture and made other reforms.
Gross is a sociology professor and former police officer.
We will look for lessons about public safety and reform that could benefit Urban Atlanta.
