Predicting Police Misconduct

By Max Schanzenbach and Kyle Rozema


Overview: 
Police shootings have captured the public’s attention in recent years, leading to protests and a lack of trust in the police. A new study by IPR associate Max Schanzenbach, the Seigle Family Professor at Northwestern’s Pritzker School of Law, and Kyle Rozema, the Wachtell Lipton Fellow in Behavioral Law and Economics at the University of Chicago Law School, identifies how civilian allegations can help reduce the gravest incidents of police misconduct by identifying which police officers pose the highest risk for serious misconduct.
