GBC Newsmaker Speaker Series: A Discussion on the Challenges of Police Reform featuring Commissioner Michael Harrison @ Webinar via Zoom
May 26 @ 9:00 am – 10:00 am

Police Commissioner Michael HarrisonPlease join the GBC and Baltimore Police Commissioner Michael Harrison for a conversation on how the Baltimore Police Department and other law enforcement agencies across the country are addressing the calls for major police reform.

Commissioner Harrison, who was appointed to the U.S. Conference of Mayors’ Police Reform and Racial Justice Working Group, recently appeared on Meet the Press to discuss the issue of police reform in America.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Policing after the George Floyd conviction
  • Impact of Maryland General Assembly’s police reform legislation
  • Nationwide changes in policing policies and procedures

Michael S. Harrison was sworn in as the Baltimore Police Department’s 41st Commissioner on March 12, 2019. Before coming to Baltimore, Commissioner Harrison served the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) for nearly three decades. He joined the NOPD in 1991. He served in supervisory assignments as an Assistant Commander, Commander of a Patrol District and Commander of the Specialized Investigations Division of the Public Integrity Bureau. He was appointed to the role of Superintendent in 2014 and led the Department for more than four years.

Commissioner Harrison has been instrumental in the development, implementation and assessment of community policing programs that have led to demonstrably increased partnership and collaboration.

In 2019, Commissioner Harrison was appointed to the Police Executive Research Forum Board of Directors, where he now serves as the President. He is a member of the Major Cities Chiefs Association and served as both the Central and Eastern Region Representative. Additionally, he is a member of the International Association of Chiefs of Police, the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives and the Law Enforcement Immigration Task Force.

He received a Bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from the University of Phoenix and a Masters of Criminal Justice from Loyola University New Orleans. He is also a graduate of the Senior Management Institute for Police, Northwestern University’s School of Police Staff and Command, and the FBI’s National Executive Institute.

Please join us for a lively discussion with Police Commissioner Harrison about a timely and important issue facing law enforcement in America.
