Police Violence and Citizen Crime Reporting in the Black Community

Matthew Desmond (Harvard), Andrew V. Papachristos (Yale), David S. Kirk (University of Oxford)

High-profile cases of police violence — disproportionately experienced by black men — may present a serious threat to public safety if they lower citizen crime reporting. This report analyzes how one of Milwaukee’s most publicized cases of police violence against an unarmed black man, the beating of Frank Jude, affected police-related 911 calls, and found that residents of Milwaukee’s neighborhoods, especially residents of Black neighborhoods, were far less likely to report crime after Jude’s beating was broadcast. The effect lasted for over a year and resulted in a total net loss of approximately 22,200 calls for service. Other local and national cases of police violence against unarmed black men also had a significant impact on citizen crime reporting in Milwaukee. Police misconduct can powerfully suppress one of the most basic forms of civic engagement: calling 911 for matters of personal and public safety.

Stop and Frisk Redux: Analysis of Racial Bias in New York City

Abraham Gutman

With the rise of violent crime in the 1990s the New York City Police Department (NYPD) turned to proactive policing practices. Perhaps the most known of these practices is Stop, Question, and Frisk, known as Stop and Frisk. The practice had a disparate impact on the black and Hispanic community of New York City as the two groups represent more than 80% of all stops. Results of data analysis in this report lead to the conclusion that Stop and Frisk is an uneven policing practice that carries racial bias.
