"Police-community relations are a key predictor of community response," says Dennis Rosenbaum, professor of criminology, law and justice at the University of Illinois at Chicago. He is available to discuss policing strategies in the wake of last week's shooting death of Micheal Brown, an unarmed African-American teenager in Ferguson, Missouri. Rosenbaum investigates police strategies and the role of citizens in crime prevention, and he is a top authority on community policing, “hot-spot” policing, school-based prevention, interagency partnerships, IT applications and program evaluation methods.
