The National Institute of Justice in collaboration with the Harvard Kennedy School have published a new report entitled New Perspectives in Policing – Examining the Role of the Police in Prisoner Reentry.  The report was authored by Jeremy Travis, Sarah Lawrence and CRCN member Chief Ronald Davis of the East Palo Alto Police Department.  The authors discuss that greater involvement by the police can not only promote public safety through more focused problem-oriented policing efforts, it can also increase police legitimacy, particularly in minority communities.
