LAW 2820 - Crime and Communities

This course considers the emerging law enforcement trend toward “community policing” and “community prosecution.” It begins with a general overview of the community-based approach to law enforcement, which provides an enhanced role for citizen actors in the criminal justice system and prioritizes “quality of life” offenses in an effort to enhance neighborhood livability, increase citizen confidence, and prevent more serious crimes. The bulk of the course addresses the constitutional questions presented by individual governmental responses to community crime concerns, such as anti-gang loitering ordinances, “drug - free” zones, juvenile curfews, aggressive panhandling bans, limitations on property rights based on criminal activity, and community-based courts. In discussing the issues, we assess competing models of criminal procedure and current debates about the proper goals of policing.
