Best Practices for Use of Force in Policing Community Workshop

EAST LANSING, Mich. — The East Lansing Independent Police Oversight Commission (ELIPOC) will host a community workshop entitled “Best Practices for Use of Force in Policing” on Sept. 30.

The ELIPOC workshop will run from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 30, with a continental breakfast served at 8:30 a.m. The event will be held at the East Lansing Hannah Community Center, 819 Abbot Road.

Facilitators for the Sept. 30 workshop will be Carlton Evans and Doak Bloss. Evans is a longtime presenter who specializes in social justice issues, using dialogue with an emphasis on listening. Bloss has facilitated over 200 community dialogues, including the use of dialogue as a vehicle for social change.
