Crime and Policing Revisited
"This paper outlines the stark
differences in the nature of police crime control conversations between
the first convening of the Executive Session on Policing (1985-1991) and
the second (2008-2014) resulting from an unprecedented growth in
rigorous evaluation research on what works in police crime prevention.
author provides an overview of what was known about the police and
crime prevention at the time of the first Executive Session; what was
proposed then as promising new ways for the police to reduce crime; and
the research conducted during the 1990s and 2000s that examined the
efficacy of these ideas. Finally, the paper concludes by offering two
central ideas on continuing effective police crime prevention policies
and practices suggested by participants of the second Executive Session
and supported by existing research evidence."
