The Making of "Lethal Restraint: Documenting Police Use of Force"

6-8:30 p.m.

Location: Eaton Theater, Knight Hall

You're invited to the Making of "Lethal Restraint: Documenting Police Use of Force." Reporters and data journalists from The Associated Press, the Howard Centers for Investigative Journalism and FRONTLINE (PBS) will lift the curtain on this unprecedented investigation into why more than 1,000 people across the U.S. died after police subdued them with force that wasn't meant to kill.

The journalists will be joined by a researcher from Georgetown University whose work focuses on police training and what can be done to improve criminal justice outcomes. The collaborative investigation by AP, FRONTLINE and the Howard Centers at the University of Maryland and Arizona State University was prompted by the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis and was three years in the making. AP already has begun rolling out stories. FRONTLINE's documentary will air April 30.

Panelists include:

  • Reese Dunklin (AP)
  • Andrea Headley (Georgetown University)
  • Ceoli Jacoby (Howard Center, Merrill College)
  • Sean Mussenden (Howard Center, Merrill College)
  • Serginho Roosblad (FRONTLINE)

The discussion will be moderated by Ron Nixon, AP's vice president for news, investigative, enterprise, and grants and partnerships.

The event is free of charge, and registration is required. A reception with light hors d'oeuvres and beverages will follow the program. Reach out with any questions to
