Police encounters have a profound impact on the communities they serve and on members of law enforcement as well. Experiences with police contact—including, for example, stops, searches and surveillance, and viewing extrajudicial police violence—is associated with negative mental and physical health outcomes for those directly involved and those who witness the events. These health impacts disproportionately affect marginalized communities, people of color and the LGBTQ+ community. This panel will discuss the use of excessive force or "hyper policing" practices or policies impacting the community; health outcomes related to the dangerous conditions or environments at times confronting the police; and the potential legal and policy interventions seeking to address the harmful health outcomes for both community members and law enforcement officers.
