Former director of the U.S. Marshals Service, Stacia A. Hylton, will begin the U.S. Marshals Museum’s spring lecture series next month.
“Modern Law Enforcement: Learning from the Past, Looking to the Future” is the theme of the series with Hylton’s lecture called “Policing in a Democratic Society" set for 6:30-8 p.m. March 7 at the DoubleTree by Hilton, 700 Rogers Ave.
“Every day, our law enforcement must strike the balance between the protection of human rights and the rule of law,” Leslie Higgins, the museum’s director of education, said in a news release. “This thought-provoking lecture series will delve deeper into this issue and provide guidance on how law enforcement can best meet this objective moving forward.”
As director of the U.S. Marshals Service, Hylton oversaw one of the more difficult periods in the agency’s history, which included the deaths of three Deputy U.S. Marshals, seven task force officers, sequestration and government shutdowns, Higgins added. Hylton will share her insight on “how law enforcement can protect civil liberties while ensuring safety for all,” the release states.
The second lecture on April 3, “Federal Law Enforcement Training,” will feature Robert Natzke, retired Deputy U.S. Marshal and lead Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC) trainer.
On May 1, Delrish Moss, chief of the Ferguson Police Department in Missouri, and Richard Bowen, a retired Deputy U.S. Marshal, will speak on “Law Enforcement and Race Relations.”
The series will conclude on June 5 with a panel discussion on “The Future of Law Enforcement” with local, county, state and federal officials.
All lectures will be held from 6:30-8 p.m. at the DoubleTree by Hilton. Tickets may be purchased through modernlawenforcement2017.eventbrite.com for $40 for the entire series or $15 per lecture. Light refreshments and a cash bar will be available.
