In 'Police: A Field Guide' (Verso, 2017), David Correia and Tyler Wall provocatively argue for a "redefined language of policing" in order to get out of the trap of "copspeak", which typically legitimates police activity and provides few avenues for thinking critically about police practices. In this Author-Meets-Critics session, our four critics -- whose research expertise encompasses police power, incarceration, and military and law enforcement technologies -- will engage with Correia and Wall's argument and book.
