This book examines the evolution of the concept of community policing and the theory of broken windows (introduced by James Q. Wilson and George Kelling in a 1982
Atlantic Monthly article). The work makes policy recommendations for the future
of policing in a post-September 11 world.
From the Foreword:
“. . . a substantial contribution to the public policy debate . . . Readers,
be they front-line police officers, those occupying leadership positions
in police departments, elected or appointive city officials, academic
researchers, or simply civic-engaged citizens, will profit enormously from Professor’s Weiss’s thoughtful, integrative, and challenging conclusions.”
