Few topics cause more concern than rising crime. And few remedies have been more discussed, on both sides of the Atlantic, than "zero-tolerance policing". Over the past three years, in places like New York and Hartlepool, England, a no-nonsense approach has been instilled. Each city's police departments cracked down on petty crime and incivility, which proponents of "zero-tolerance policing" believe to be starters to potentially serious criminal behavior. The result in each city has been a drastic decrease in the crime rate. Still, the policy's opponents believe it is too confrontational to be of long-term benefit. This book explores both sides of the tissue.
