Law Foundation of Saskatchewan Chair in Police Studies lecture
Jeff Pfeifer, Law Foundation of Saskatchewan Chair in Police Studies, will deliver his inaugural lecture, "The Town, the Gown and the Uniform: Public Safety and the Community, Academics and the Police". 

During the past 20 years, it has become apparent that public safety can no longer be viewed as simply the responsibility of the police. It is argued that the current vision of public safety should be a partnership between the police, the community and academics. Pfeifer's presentation will examine the traditional barriers between these three groups, outline roles and responsibilities for each, provide suggestions for bridging historical disconnects, and propose an integrative model for public safety. 

The Chair in Police Studies in the Faculty of Arts at the University of Regina was established with the support of the Law Foundation of Saskatchewan. The foundation is dedicated to enhancing legal education and research in order to respond to challenges facing the administration of justice. 

The lecture will take place on Monday, Sept. 12 at 7:30 p.m. in the Education Auditorium at the University of Regina. Admission to the lecture is free, and parking is available at no charge in Lots 14 and 17 in the "M" designated areas. For more information, contact Milagros Chárriez at (306) 585-4226.
