Event Date and Time

Tune in for the release of the report Proactive Policing: Effects on Crime and Communities, a new report from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine as they assess the applications and results of proactive policing strategies including their impacts on crime, reaction from communities, whether they are being used in a legal fashion, and if they are applied in a discriminatory manner. 

The webinar briefing will feature members of the study committee that authored the report who will discuss the report's conclusions and recommendations. 

The term "proactive policing" refers to policing strategies that are explicitly intended to prevent or reduce crime, as opposed to reacting to crimes after they have occurred. Recently, there has been a growing interest in learning whether these proactive policing strategies are effective on crime prevention, but less attention has been paid to its implications for justice and community relations in the United States. 

Speakers include:

  • David Weisburd (Chair), George Mason University Distinguished Professor and Director of the Center for Evidence-Based Crime Policy, Fairfax, Virginia
  • Anthony Braga, Northeastern University Distinguished Professor and Director of the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice, Boston, Massachusetts
