‘Trib Talk’ Town Hall: A conversation about police reform in Utah

(Francisco Kjolseth | The Salt Lake Tribune) An officer takes a knee with a group of demonstrators protesting against police brutality in downtown Salt Lake City on Wednesday, June 3, 2020.

Protesters in Utah and across the country are calling for change in how law enforcement operates and is funded. Amid those calls to defund and disband the police, local leaders are looking at budgets, citizen review boards and more.

In a virtual town hall, Lex Scott of Black Lives Matter, Salt Lake City Police Chief Mike Brown, University of Utah Police Chief Rodney Chatman and Utah Valley University Associate Professor Dianne McAdams-Jones joined Tribune Executive Editor Jennifer Napier-Pearce for an open discussion about police violence and reform efforts in Utah tonight at 7 p.m.

You can watch the conversation on Facebook, and you can listen to the audio on iTunes, Spotify, Stitcher or Soundcloud.

The Tribune will host one other conversation in this three-part town hall series that focuses on solutions and policy proposals on Wednesday, June 24 at 7 p.m. RSVP here. You can revisit our first conversation about racism in Utah here.

“Trib Talk” is produced by Jeni Fitzgibbon and Sara Weber.
