Assertive Policing, Plummeting Crime: Epilogue: Crime Falls, Doubts Arise Case Solution
The dramatic decrease in crime in New York during the 1990s caught the attention of the U.S. and the world, particularly those looking to supply evidence that new policy and management strategies could make an enormous difference for the better regardless of the location. The chief case tells the narrative of crucial management decisions the New York Police Department itself credits with the successful assault on the city’s crime rate.
This epilogue raises the dramatic question of whether the aim of minimizing the abuse of force by police officers is also amenable to the measurement techniques employed to the action of offenders. HKS case number 1530.1.
