ACS Minneapolis-St. Paul: Turnsignl: De-Escalating Police-Citizen Encounters and Helping Everyone Get Home Safe
Join the ACS Minneapolis-St. Paul Lawyer Chapter and the Minnesota Hispanic Bar Association for a conversation with the co-founder, CEO and General Counsel of Turnsignl, Jazz Hampton. Minnesota-based TurnSignl is an on-demand, real-time app and service that facilitates and records law enforcement interactions with drivers during traffic stops and accidents. In the event that they are pulled over, a driver can access a live legal representative at the touch of a button or voice command.
