4th Annual Conference on Law Enforcement Active Bystandership

August 11-12 , 11 am – 5 pm EDT

More about ABLE

Last June, in the wake of George Floyd’s murder by a police officer, Georgetown Law’s Innovative Policing Program (IPP) launched the ABLE Project to prevent policing harm and help change police culture. 

ABLE teaches officers how to intervene to prevent other officers from causing harm, and promotes a police culture that supports active bystandership. 

With the help of Georgetown colleagues, including those on ABLE’s Research Advisory Board, the project has grown beyond IPP’s expectations. 

Today, 153 ABLE-certified law enforcement agencies are training over 100,000 officers serving nearly 62 million people in the United States. And Georgetown Law is poised to break new ground in researching what works in police transformation efforts.

Check out ABLE’s resource hub, where Georgetown Law students and others have issued a white paper on the duty to intervene, assembled a compendium of bystandership cases and created a duty-to-intervene model policy.
