Policing and protests

We sit down with Professor Edward Maguire of ASU's School of Criminology and Criminal Justice, a nationally known expert on police use of force, particularly at protests and during conflict.

Throughout the summer, Maguire was frequently interviewed by national and international media to offer his opinions about how police deal with suspects and how they handled protests in several U.S. cities in the aftermath of the George Floyd killing. He talked about communities that were most affected, including Minneapolis and Portland, Oregon, and was interviewed by several dozen outlets from the U.S. and two European countries.

Maguire is co-editor of a compilation of 13 proposed reforms for U.S. police departments, “Transforming the Police,” published earlier this year.
