Professor David Harris participated in the Urban Institute Round Table on Stop and Frisk Practices in the U.S. on September 12 and 13 in Washington, D.C.  The Round Table group consisted of the leading scholars of police practices in criminology and the legal academy, the police chiefs of major cities in the U.S., and officials from the U.S. Justice Department with responsibility for law enforcement.  With more and more cities using intensive stop and frisk practices as cornerstones of crime control efforts, the discussion focused on the effectiveness of this strategy, its costs to the public, and its iimpact on police/community relations.
