During this time, there was a prominent shift in policing tactics from a regime of mass enforcement centered on frequent street stops and field interrogations to a regime of precision policing, in which the department focused on a smaller number of suspected criminal organizations which were thought to drive gun violence in the city.In this webinar, <strong>Aaron Chalfin (University of Pennsylvania) </strong>presented evidence on the effectiveness of the signature policy of the new policing regime in New York City: targeted "gang takedowns" in the city's public housing communities. <strong>Thomas Abt (Council on Criminal Justice)</strong> commented on the implications of this research. A 10-minute Q&amp;A followed the presentations.<h4>Speaker</h4><ul></ul><ul><li><a href="https://crim.sas.upenn.edu/people/aaron-j-chalfin"><strong>Aaron Chalfin</strong></a><em>, Assistant Professor of Criminology at the University of Pennsylvania</em></li></ul><h4>Policy Discussant</h4><ul><li><a href="https://counciloncj.org/thomas-abt-2/"><strong>Thomas Abt</strong></a><em>, Chair of Violent Crime Working Group and Senior Fellow at the Council on Criminal Justice</em></li></ul><h4>Moderator</h4><ul><li><a href="/people/ana-tamayo"><strong>Ana Tamayo</strong></a><em>, Policy Communications Manager at IPA</em></li></ul><em><strong>Watch the video recordings below in English and Spanish.</strong></em><h2>City</h2>Webinar<h2>Country</h2>United States
