What is happening in cities where murder rates are down, and what is not happening in those cities where murder rates are escalating? What are the most important elements to consider within a jurisdiction with respect to homicides and public safety? Don’t forget to join the Urban Institute tomorrow, March 5, for a forum on how criminal justice practitioners can put homicide rates in their place. This panel discussion will feature insights from Washington, DC, Chief of Police Cathy Lanier; Professor and Chair of the University of Maryland’s Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice James Lynch; Senior Fellow at the Urban Institute’s Justice Policy Center John Roman; and Director of the Urban Institute’s Justice Policy Center Nancy La Vigne.
