The Future of Policing in Columbus

City leaders in Columbus are trying out new solutions for Columbus' policing problems. But will they work to make our community safer? We're taking a deep-dive inside the world of policing to look for data, research and solutions to the problems of policing rooted in our city. Together, we'll sort through the calls for defunding, abolition and other reforms to see what is possible and what is already happening. Have an episode topic or interview suggestion?
