What Does the Research Say About Public Safety and Criminal Justice Reform?

As a spike in homicides triggers a political backlash, top experts identify how an inefficient and ineffective justice system fails to promote public safety.

These papers each respond to two broad prompts.
First, how does a particular aspect of the justice system advance or undermine community safety?
Second, what is your summary or assessment of the evidence, and are there remaining research questions that need to be answered?
The following six papers are the scholars’ independent and thoughtful reviews of the available evidence in response to those prompts:

Stolen trailer found in homeless camp considered too hostile | kare11.com

There is never a place that is not private where the police can not police. It is crazy the someone can house stolen property on City owned lane and the police afraid to go get it. They might be a best time to help the victim to get it. Like early in the morning when everyone is sleeping or they might need additional resources like a tow truck if something is blocking in the trailer.

There are a couple of concepts that in play here first no one can legally possess stolen property. Second police (and citizens) can use force to protect property. Third if an area is unsafe for police it has to be cleaned up and closed down. There has to be victims suffering that are not known to the police.

The bottom line that this is a terrible circumstance and the police have to take control. First get the victim’s trailer back and secondly clean up that property.
