Description : Abstract
Jan von Mehren reports that Graylan Ellis-Hagler (Church of the United Community) has been critical of the Boston Police Department's stop-and-search policy in Roxbury. Von Mehren notes that Ellis-Hagler has proposed that graduates of the police academy spend 18 months working as coaches and counselors in the community. Von Mehren interviews Ellis-Hagler. Ellis-Hagler says that police officers and the community would benefit from a stronger relationship. He adds that the police must take a more innovative approach to fighting crime in the area. Ellis-Hagler says that police officers and young people need to form a partnership. Von Mehren notes that critics do not believe that Ellis-Hagler's plan is feasible. Von Mehren's report includes footage of Ellis-Hagler with a group of men at the Church of the United Community.
