Prosecutor Works with Landlords to Stabilize Neighborhoods

“We can’t solve a crime problem by arresting and prosecuting everyone that's just not going to work.”

Plot incidents of crime on a map - homicides, shootings, robberies, and you begin to see hotspots. Police districts commonly use this approach to figure out where to concentrate police. But Milwaukee’s police district three is taking a more granular approach. One that attempts to curb gun violence by focusing on property maintenance, like mowing the lawn.
