ABOUT THE LECTURE SERIES

The Senator Ron Rice Lecture on Criminal Justice and Public Policy lecture series was initiated in 2014 in honor of our alum Senator Ron Rice, to feature cutting edge discussions of justice innovations involving the intersection of criminal justice policy and practice. Once a year, we invite a distinguished speaker to appear before an audience of approximately 100-120 guests to shed light on contemporary topics. This prestigious lecture series is made possible through the continuous collaborative efforts of our partners: Rutgers Law School, the Graduate School and the Office of the Chancellor at Rutgers University – Newark. The event is free and open to the public.

It is with great pleasure and honor that we welcome the Inspector General for the NYPD Philip K. Eure as the keynote speaker for our 4th annual Senator Ron Rice Lecture on Criminal Justice and Public Policy for a presentation on “Police Reform: The Essential Role of Independent Review.”

 

ABOUT OUR KEYNOTE SPEAKER

The Inspector General for the NYPD is Philip K. Eure. Before his appointment to OIG-NYPD by DOI Commissioner Mark G. Peters in March 2014 and assuming his current responsibilities on May 27, 2014, Mr. Eure was the Executive Director of the District of Columbia’s Office of Police Complaints – a role he held for nearly 14 years. As Executive Director, Mr. Eure developed and led the agency in its work investigating, adjudicating and mediating complaints by the public alleging police misconduct, as well as issuing investigative reports and recommendations for improvements in the work of Washington D.C.’s Metropolitan Police Department. A nationally-recognized expert in the field of independent police review, Mr. Eure served in 2008, 2009, and 2010 as President of the National Association for Civilian Oversight of Law Enforcement (NACOLE), a non-profit organization of law enforcement oversight agencies and practitioners that works to enhance accountability and transparency in policing and build community trust through independent police review. He has also been a panelist and presenter on police oversight issues nationally and in Puerto Rico, Brazil, and Canada. Prior to his leadership at Washington, D.C.’s police accountability agency, Mr. Eure served for a decade in the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice, first as a Trial Attorney and later as a Senior Trial Attorney. He received his law degree from Harvard Law School and his undergraduate degree in Political Science from Stanford University.
