LJJP will host a series of panels throughout the year, open to everyone, to help reporters answer key questions about public safety.
How do you understand and analyze police data on crime? What are the root causes of violence, and what are the effective solutions to it? How do you cover a police shooting as it breaks?
LLJP will be addressing topics such as: how criminal justice reporting perpetuates racism; navigating records requests; the intersection of DAs, police, sheriffs, mayors, city government and state agencies; interpreting crime data; developments in forensic science; and many more.
Panels will bring together seasoned reporters and subject matter experts, such as Robert Greene (LA Times), Maurice Chammah (Marshall Project), and Astead Herndon (New York Times), and will allow plenty of time for questions from participants to work through pressing issues they are having in their work.
