About this Video

Professor Daniel Nagin of Carnegie Mellon University talks with Vera Director Michael Jacobson about whether we can reduce both crime and incarceration through shifted corrections policies and effective policing. Nagin cautions that public policy must always strike the appropriate balance between two chief concerns: maintaining public safety and preserving civil liberties. This podcast is part of the 2011-12 Neil A. Weiner Research Speaker Series.
