Franklin E. Zimring discusses the decline in crime in New York City during the period between 1990 and 2010. He examines the relationship between the drop in street crime and the New York City Police Department's emphasis on street policing rather than mass incarceration to achieve harm reduction and crime control.
Professor Zimring is the William G. Simon Professor of Law and Wolfen Distinguished Scholar at the University of California's Boalt Hall School of Law.
