Policing Poetry: Communities, Public Service, and Words

Detective Edward Gillespie of the Baltimore Police Department

Kerrville, TX – Schreiner University presents the Weir and Nell Labatt Distinguished Lecture Series, featuring Detective Edward Gillespie of the Baltimore Police Department on Oct 20, from 1:15 p.m. to 2:15 p.m. in the Cailloux Campus Activity Center Ballrooms. This highly anticipated lecture – titled Policing Poetry: Communities, Public Service, and Words – is free and open to the public.

Edward Gillespie is a Baltimore City Police officer. A 16-year veteran of the force, he has worked in patrol, operations and education among other specializations. Currently, he is engaged in the training, teaching, and planning of the Baltimore Police Department’s movement towards police reform. His books of poetry include Masala Tea and Oranges, On the Later Addition of Sancho Panza, Socorro Prophecy, and Aerial Act. His most recent title is Gentrifying the Plague House, an exploration of our world of social upheaval and pandemic. He is a former teacher who holds a BA in History from George Washington University, and a Master of Liberal Arts from Johns Hopkins University.

The Weir and Nell Labatt Distinguished Lecture Series was established by a generous gift from the late Nell Schreiner Labatt to bring motivational speakers to the Schreiner campus.
