UCLA Studies Flawed Policing Strategy: SCI, Don’t Believe the Hype

In a piece entitled, ” Study: Skid row crackdown  ineffective” Channel 7 covers a recent study released by Professor Gary Blasi that determined the Safer Cities Initiative [SCI], which deployed scores of LAPD officers to Skid Row, was nearly a bust.  The study took a look at the entirety of crime reported in LAPD’s Central Division.  Blasi then carved out the purported SCI catchment area and compared the prevalence of crime in both areas. You will find the results quite interesting and hopefully begin to question the real motive behind occupying an entire community.
