How Central Florida law enforcement is adjusting to a changing landscape of policing

Solutionaries looks at how citizens, law enforcement are working to change policing

With everything that’s happened in the last several years — the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, a rash of officer-involved shooting incidents, the Black Lives Matter movement and calls to defund the police — many law enforcement agencies have sought to make changes to their policies.

How have attitudes towards the police changed over the last twenty years? What are our officers doing right and what can they do better? Are sheriffs and police chiefs doing anything to adjust to the new normal of transparency brought on by social media, smartphones, dashcams, bodycams, and home security systems?

This week’s episode of Solutionaries on the News 6+ Takeover examines two Central Florida police agencies and how their leaders are navigating the roadblocks in performing the fundamental job of keeping the public safe.
