MCC Annual Assembly Workshop Feature: Confronting Violence through “Hot Spots” Policing

Read any metropolitan newspaper and you will notice that violence is a serious concern in urban areas. Is there anything that can be done to make our urban core safer? At the MCC Annual Assembly on Saturday, September 28, Dr. Richard Rosenfeld, a Professor of Criminology and Criminal Justice at the University of Missouri-St. Louis, will explore strategies to reduce violence in our cities.

Professor Rosenfeld will explore the idea of “hot spots” policing or targeting violence prone areas. He will also explore other forms of crime prevention, including strategies supported by faith communities. This workshop promises a wealth of information and stimulating discussion that you won’t want to miss!
