Today: Future of #BrokenWindows event w/ @ManhattanDA, @CommissBratton, @errollouis, @SquarePegDem, & Richard Aborn

#Brokenwindows is a community development strategy as well as a policing strategy

@SquarePegDem@ManhattanInst: High risk neighborhoods want more policing but it requires partnership w/ the community & police  @SquarePegDem

@ManhattanInst: If we keep ppl w mental health issues on  medication & in supportive housing, we can help them from committing serious crimes. @SquarePegDem

At the conclusion of the forum, I had the opportunity to meet and speak with George Kelling, who together with James Q. Wilson, postulated the Broken Windows theory.
