Melding Police and Policy to Dramatically Reduce Crime in the City of New Orleans
2009 0-7734-4867-5
This study examines the reasons crime declined so rapidly in New Orleans following the 1996 implementation of the COMSTAT management and accountability style of policing. The author compares the results to similar efforts to reduce crime in the rest of the country by drawing on political and criminological theories of policing as well as sociological theories.
