Cambridge Center for Adult Education presents
Conversations on the Edge:
Policing in Cambridge: The Issues, The Future, The Budget
Thursday, September 24, 6pm
Cambridge, known as one of the most progressive communities in the country, has nonetheless realized that it, like every town in America, must look carefully at how it is being and has been policed. How will we, as participants in Cambridge’s future, decide how our police force will look and function? Join us for the first conversation in CCAE’s fourth year of the Conversations on the Edge series to talk with a distinguished panel about Cambridge policing and the issues the CPD and we, as a community, face at this crucial juncture, when policing is under scrutiny as never before.

About Conversations on the Edge
Conversations on the Edge was started at Cambridge Center for Adult Education (CCAE) in 2017 as a discussion series bringing together local experts with differing perspectives on important topics. CCAE has a long history as a place for learning and critical discussions with the community. We continue that tradition through Conversations on the Edge, which addresses timely issues with panelists and members of the community who are experts in their field.
