VERMILLION, S.D. - Police accountability is a recently new subject that police departments have had to work with since in the 1950s.
With the developments of body cameras, citizens using their own smartphones worked into investigative journalism, this is what police stations around the country have to manage in today's society.
On this week's episode of Credit Hour, Host Michael Ewald has a conversation with Tom Mrozla, assistant professor of criminal justice about police misconduct and police accountability, the history of these issues and what it means for society today.
“The police occupy a really interesting position within society. On one hand they are the public and on the other hand they are supposed to police the public,” Mrozla said. “So there’s an interesting power dynamic there that really intrigues me.”
