Terrell J. Starr a senior New York editor of the online news network AlterNet recently wrote an article entitled “Body Cams Can Capture Abuse, But Can They End Police Brutality?” His article suggest that Criminal justice experts say much more is needed to really reform police departments nationwide. Stacy Spell a retired New Haven homicide detective believes that a key to police reform is “Community Building.” Since his retirement in 2006, he has since reinvigorated the West River Neighborhood Services Corporation and put special focus on working with at-risk young people.
