Abstract:

In 1994, Hudson Institute and the Indianapolis Police Department (IPD) formed a unique partnership, the
only such relationship between an independent public-policy organization and a major urban police
department. This unusual partnership worked with citizens, business groups, and other local constituencies to identify crime-prone areas, assess disorder problems, and establish deterrents.
