Triangle Center Report Recommends Reforms to Policing Practices to Prevent Violent Extremism

Layout 1This research report, sponsored by the National Institute of Justice, assesses the strategy of using community policing techniques to prevent violent extremism, with a special emphasis on police relations with Muslim American communities.  The report concludes that police departments adopt a set of “promising practices” that will build trust between police and the communities they serve and enable community police partnerships to address the challenge of preventing violent extremism.  The report is written by Triangle Center director, David Schanzer, along with his co-authors, Charles Kurzman (UNC Chapel Hill), Jessica Toliver (Police  Executive Research Forum (PERF), and Jessica Miller (PERF).
