Dr. George Kelling, father of the "broken windows" theory of crime prevention, and William Bratton, the former police chief for New York City and Los Angeles who implemented that theory to great effect, will lead a discussion on a groundbreaking study by the Goldwater Institute aimed at improving the performance of police departments and minimizing the influence of drug cartels.

The Goldwater Institute forum will focus on ways to keep our streets safe in the face of budget reductions, and how to use high performance policing techniques to ensure young police recruits are not corrupted by Mexican drug cartels.
Who: Dr. George Kelling, father of the “broken windows” theory of crime prevention, and William Bratton, former New York City and Los Angeles police chief.

What: Goldwater Institute forum on improving the performance of police departments.

When: Wednesday, February 16 5:30-7:00 p.m.

Where: Goldwater Institute, 500 East Coronado Road, (one block north of McDowell, west of 7th Street) Phoenix, Arizona.
