An interview with Bill Bratton on the Reducing Crime Podcast

This is an EXCELLENT Podcast. I haven’t read Bill Bratton’s new book “The Profession” but I’m sure it is probably as good as his fist book “Turnaround” (One of my favorites).

An excellent comparison.

It is very useful to compare concepts among several different Consent Decrees.
