TEDxABQ: Protect & Serve | Professor David Correia provides a historical perspective

What does it look like to reshape a relationship between law enforcement and the communities it serves? How can we, as citizens and as a community, ensure our families are safe, and our law enforcement agents are properly equipped to protect and serve in our city?

On May 1, 2014 TEDxABQ invited Protect & Serve to host a salon.  We brought together leaders, community members, organizers, professionals and law enforcement agents from a wide range of communities in Albuquerque to share their ideas and visions for what it means to protect and serve in ABQ. This salon sought to engage in and inspire constructive, non-partisan conversation on how we can address the challenges we now face as a community and create a healthy and safe Albuquerque.

A special thanks to the New Mexico Conference of Churches and anonymous donors who helped to make the event available and free to the public.

David Correia. David Correia is an Assistant Professor of American Studies at the University of New Mexico, and the author of the book, “Properties of Violence: Law and Land Grant Struggle in Northern New Mexico. For the past four years, Correia has written extensively on the problem of police violence in Albuquerque.
Correia approaches his talk from a historical perspective. He argues that the problem of police violence has a long history in Albuquerque. To understand and finally resolve the problem we have to place both the pattern of violence and previous efforts to reform APD in historical context.
