A WAMU series explores gun violence and aggressive policing in the nation's capital.
Guest Host: Jen Golbeck
The Smithsonian National Zoo has long been a favorite spot for runners and walkers in D.C., who are able to enter and use its public walkways unrestricted. But now, the zoo wants to tighten security by decreasing the number of pedestrian entrances, adding more fencing and establishing more checkpoints. The Smithsonian’s plan is still in its early stages (a proposal will be reviewed by the Capital Planning Commission this week), the plan has raised concern from residents and tourists who enjoy the zoo’s open entrances. Guest host Jen Golbeck will discuss how institutions assess risk and balance security in public spaces.
