"Policing gun crime without guns"

This is the title of a new article by Professors Tracey L. Meares of Yale University and Andrew Papachristos of the University of Massachusetts. In it, the authors "discuss the policy potential of a unique intervention effort that polices gun offenders with a hybrid mix of traditional enforcement and models of normative change." In particular, they examine the impact that Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a billion-dollar federal program to promote new ways to reduce the number of gun-crimes, has had on the significant reduction of gun homicides in Chicago.
