Keeping the Peace Through Intensive Community Policing

  July 19, 2021, 12:00 PM-1:00 PM

As crime soars and the breakdown of public order takes its toll, new analysis from the John Locke Foundation signals it’s time to adopt a different approach to crime control, one that shifts the focus further upstream, looking at prevention models, rather than exclusively on punitive measures. In this conversation, Jon Guze, author of the new report, Keeping the Peace, will share research that shows the current focus of catching, convicting, and punishing perpetrators after crimes have been committed has come with enormous economic and social costs. However, intensive community policing has proven successful at deterring crime and maintaining order. Our panel of criminal justice and public safety experts will discuss pathways to safer communities and less poverty so that no one lives in fear, and no one is denied the opportunity to flourish that comes with safety and stability.

Please Note: This is an online event. This event will be streamed live from our YouTube channel, Facebook page, and homepage at 12:00 pm on Monday, July 19, 2021.
