What New York Teaches About American Crime and Its Control
Frank Zimring William G. Simon Professor of Law and Wolfen Distinguished Scholar - Berkeley Law, University of California
The Donald and Margaret Sherman Violence Prevention Lecture | Location: McNeil Center for Early American Studies (3355 Woodland Walk)
The Jerry Lee Center of Criminology
Description:

In his forthcoming book, The City That Became Safe, Frank Zimring argues that a close look at the more than 80% drop in safety crime in New York City over two decades undermines the basic assumption about crime and crime control that have determined policy in the United States for a generation. The lecture will outline the study's empirical findings and five important policy lessons that emerge from a close reading of the New York data.
