Lessons Learned from Civil Unrest Seminar
Following protests and violence sparked by deadly police use-of-force in several cities across the U.S., CHHS was approached by the Annapolis Office of Emergency Management to develop and deliver a seminar on lessons learned when responding to civil unrest. CHHS Senior Policy Analyst Vernon Herron, a veteran law enforcement professional, presented a comprehensive two day event to both city officials and first responders that examined pros and cons of efforts taken by government agencies from Ferguson, to New York, to Baltimore. The seminar gave participants the opportunity to discuss how to mitigate, prepare for, respond to, and recover from similar protests that may take place in the City of Annapolis.
