Abstract

This article discusses some controversial aspects of the theory of broken windows and its application to the strategy of zero tolerance in the policing of urban crimes. The strategy was first adopted by the New York police department during the tenure of Republican mayor Rudy Giuliani and has been strongly recommended for the policing of crime in other cities in the world.
