21st Century Policing in Nightlife Districts at RHI's Leadership Summit in Charleston

Share Article

Nightlife districts generally reflect the melting pot of a city or region, bringing together people of varying ages, income, racial, ethnic and cultural backgrounds to meet, socialize and to share food, drink, music and dance. The Responsible Hospitality Institute’s Public Safety and Policing Nightlife Districts Leadership Summit showcases successful strategies to maintain vibrancy while reducing the risk of violence, sexual assault or interpersonal conflicts in nighttime social activity.
