Maintaining public safety in an effective and just way is a major challenge for all societies. Critical to this is the role of the police. In this course, students will examine and evaluate innovative police strategies that aim to deliver safety and legitimacy simultaneously, both in the United States and across the globe. Using the best and most rigorous research available, students will learn to approach policy issues from the perspective of a senior decisionmaker interested in concrete change and measurable results. 

Please note, a limited number of seats will be held for Sociology students and advanced level undergrads.
