Dr. Troy Payne, Justice faculty, recently co-authored an article, "Problem framing in problem solving: a case study," which was published in Policing: An International Journal.
His co-authors are Kathleen Gallagher, John E. Eck, and James Frank of the University of Cincinnati.
The purpose of this paper is to examine how initial frameworks for understanding police problems influence how police analyze and address those problems in the context of problem-oriented policing. The paper shows why researchers, and police, should pay more attention to problem theories.
