Aggressive policing damages health equity and community health

Aggressive policing, or aggressive order maintenance policing, is prevalent throughout the US, negatively affecting the health of those exposed to it.

Dr. Hedwig Lee, a professor at Washington University in St. Louis, along with colleagues Michael Esposito and Savannah Larimore discuss these effects in a new Health Affairs Policy Brief. The brief is part of Health Affairs ongoing series of policy briefs on the social determinants of health.

On today’s episode of Health Affairs This Week, Rob Lott talks with Dr. Lee about the brief, how little data their is on aggressive policing, and how the practice can not just negatively impact individuals, but also their families and communities at large.
