Discussion and Dessert: Beverly Hills Police — A Positive Force

dad picture 
Many of us have read newspaper articles and online information about the current challenges of  Police Departments. Is the BHPD different? What can be done to make homes more safe?  How many police officers  patrol the business streets? What is the policy regarding  use of force? What is the policy for homeless people who try to camp or use the gardens on Santa Monica Blvd?  Asst Capt. Max Subin will answer these questions and more.

We begin our new season of Discussion and Dessert with a special speaker, Acting Captain Max Subin of the Beverly Hills Police Department.

Our speaker, Captain Max Subin has been with the Beverly Hills Police Department for 22 years.  He was sworn in as a Police Officer with BHPD in 1999 and has held positions in Patrol, Crime Suppression, the Detective Bureau, Community Relations and the Professional Standards unit.  He has the knowledge and experience of a long-time police officer.

Policing has changed since the onset of the pandemic.  What is different now in the way police approach people? Will there be any de-funding of the police budget?  Has the Police Department recruited and hired new police? If so, how has training been altered, particularly in the use of force? How could the vandalizing of Rodeo Drive in June, 2020 been prevented? If protesters again begin to assemble on Beverly Hills residential streets, how will the police handle the problem?

"To protect and to serve" is the motto of the police department.   You will have a chance to ask questions of Captain Subin in what promises to be a most interesting evening.
