Just thinking how lucky we are in Bethlehem.
In this time of national conversation about the people/police relationships, we have two wonderful local resources on which to draw (notice how deftly Gadfly avoided ending with a preposition?).
Prof Holona Ochs at Lehigh whose team has conducted 124 local interviews as part of a research project on police/community relationships and whose report should be out in the fall.
The International Institute for Restorative Practices, 531 Main St., who has conducted police/community summits in Detroit.
Wow! A lot of practical experience and know-how to aid us as we feel our way through tricky conversations ahead.
