The Robbery Case Enhancement Program


This 1982 Vera study reviews the disposition of robbery arrests made in the 22 Precincts designated as Robbery Case Enhancement Precincts during the first seven months of the program (January 12-July 31, 1982). It compares the police, district attorney and criminal court disposition of arrests which were subjected to the enhancement process with the disposition of arrests made in the same precincts during the same period but which were not enhanced because they were waived, missed, or were Comparison Group arrests.
