This chapter is a summary of several journal articles that the first author of this text had published between 2002 and 2006, which examined the social ecology of police misconduct, the consequences of police misconduct in structurally disadvantaged communities, as well as the crime reduction potentials of arrest-based policing strategies. It not only examines the causes and consequences of police misconduct at the precinct level, but also considers the consequences of overly aggressive policing strategies that often lead to the very behaviors the police are trying to control—violent crime. This discussion is particularly important because it extends the examination of the NYPD and its practices well into the twenty-first century.

Keywords:   social ecology, consequences of police misconduct, policing strategies, NYPD practices, crime reduction, arrest-based policing
