PAST EVENT Thursday November 3 2022

From New York to San Francisco, city streets have become dramatically less safe. Rampant shoplifting, random machete attacks, and gunpoint carjackings have created a pervasive sense of unease and fear. Unchecked disorder is changing the face of neighborhoods, shuttering businesses, and keeping citizens off the subways and inside after dark. Frequently, poor and black communities suffer the most. An entire generation of trust-building is being reversed as "low-level" offending escalates into cycles of violence.

How do we halt the growing chaos so that cities can flourish? What can we learn from earlier successes?

Please join us on Thursday, November 3, for our third annual George L. Kelling Lecture, honoring two-time NYPD Commissioner Raymond Kelly. Serving under Mayor David Dinkins, Commissioner Kelly enlisted Kelling to address the menace of "squeegee men”—which led to strategies that shaped crimefighting for the next thirty years. After an introductory speech from MI scholar Heather Mac Donald, Kelly will be interviewed by CBS law enforcement analyst, retired FBI SWAT team leader, and upstate mayor James Gagliano on how New York and other cities can learn from the Commissioner's successes.
