Policing and Public Safety 

Crime and disorder hit the most vulnerable communities hardest, making it difficult for people who already face challenging circumstances to improve their lives. For cities to be engines of prosperity and opportunity, they must be safe. Public safety requires effective policing and criminal justice. The Manhattan Institute has long been known for its innovative and consequential work on public safety. This was exemplified by the work of George Kelling and James Q. Wilson, and the manifest improvements that Broken Windows policing had on the quality of life in New York City. Today, such work and insights are more critical than ever. 

MI’s policing and public safety team is focused on improving public safety and quality of life for all residents. Their research touches on a range of policy matters, from policing to the courts to corrections.

  • Provide research and writing support on criminal justice policy matters. 
  • Provide briefings on recent news stories and summarize legislative hearings, conferences, and other events. Compile research and conduct data analysis in Excel and other programs. 
  • Assist with the distribution of MI policy research to federal, state, and local policymakers. 
  • Assist with the organization of events. 

Required Skills:

  • An interest in policing and other criminal justice policy areas
  • Strong research background
