Tuesday, April 23rd, at City Council's Public Safety Committee Meeting, District 4 Councilmember Schaaf arranged for a presentation by Berkeley Law Professor Franklin Zimring on "What Oakland Can Learn From New York About Reducing Crime." He presented in City Hall Chambers (14th at Broadway) at 6pm. As always, the meeting was available on KTOP Cable Station 10 or live stream here.
Description of the Event:
No city has come close to New York's success in improving safety - reducing crimes like murder, robberies, burglaries and car thefts all by more than 80%. And no author or academic has come close to Zimring in rigorously studying it.Agenda available here.
A 2011 version of Zimring's presentation (which may be the same one he gave) available here.
A video of the presentation is available here.
