This analysis discusses changes in policing that could help build popular legitimacy, i.e. public trust and confidence in the police. The low level of public trust, especially in minority communities, has been the focus of recent national attention in the wake of a series of deaths during public contact with the police. This analysis will focus on three potential areas of change: the style of policing, the scope of policing, and the organization of policing.
