The Quality Policing Podcast brings a reasoned and informed perspective to discussions about policing. The podcast is hosted by two people with a proven track record of bring strongly critical of bad policing, and equally supportive of good policing. The podcast seeks to engage in meaningful and respectfully opinionated discussion among its hosts and with stakeholders including cops, judges, attorneys, and activists.
Peter Moskos and Nick Selby believe reasonable people who understand the facts of events — and the realities of policing — are able to form stronger conclusions. This drives more helpful and constructive public dialogue about even the most controversial police-citizen encounters. QPP strives to present this reasonable forum to inform debate that leads to meaningful improvement.
